It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Montreal dream-pop outfit Bodywash, but the wait is over this week with a new single Kind of Light — a follow-up to their 2019 Comforter LP and 2020 single Follow. The duo of Chris Steward and Rosie Long Decter has also announced their signing to Light Organ Records.

“I wrote ‘Kind of Light’ in bed,” says Long Decter. “It was the fall of 2018 and Chris and I were both going through experiences of learning not to trust what feels like home. He sent me a plugin for a new organ sound, suggesting it might provide inspiration. I sent him back chords, a kick pattern, and some vocals about trying to pull your legs back; trying to take your energy out of the wreckage and put it into yourself. The process of deciding what’s worth keeping, what can be reworked and what gets tossed in the fire. A process that is devastating and also weirdly invigorating, because you can see new possibilities opening up in front of you. And you can start to look for light somewhere else.”

Listen to Kind of Light in the embed below, and keep it locked to their socials going forward — this is one act you don’t want to sleep on.
