grant earl lavalley is a desert-dwelling singer/songwriter. 'let the light shine in' is the b-side from his 'dark love' 7" out now on exit stencil records. it's an ominous slab of sun-baked americana, existing in a psychedelic-desert-noir territory that is weird and familiar at once.
the dark atmosphere of the song is made of a lightly pulsing organ, plucked guitar, some washes of distortion, and gloomy singing. the music video, filmed in grant's hometown of joshua tree, california, has similar vibes.
