Why We're Excited: Most bands with singers tend to place vocals at the center of their sound; to use music as a way of enhancing and complementing a singing voice rather than the other way around. For Lightning Bug, singer-songwriter Audrey Kang lets her voice swirl into a larger enchanting whole — busy, noisy, shoegaze-y concoctions in which her lyrical intentions remain opaque.
