Lanayah’s new album, »I’m Picking Lights In A Field…«, marks an expansion of the band’s compositional ambition. It was conceptualized, written, and recorded as a single album-length piece and later cut into eight tracks marking distinct movements while flowing freely forward.

Over the album’s 40-minute runtime, Lanayah travels through dense fog and wide-open landscapes with jagged riffs, synthetic ambient passages, and intertwining polyrhythms.
