ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Empty Space is a work of dark, atmospheric, post-punk, comprised entirely of treated guitars, bass, & drum machines. It is perhaps Lycia's closest brush with making a pop-oriented album, though the cold rhythms of the vintage drum machine are just pieces of a much larger picture. Mike's whispered, desert-parched musings duel with Tara's more ethereal vocals & land atop shimmering, melodic, treble-boosted guitar lines. The result is a sound that's more Durutti Column than Cabaret Voltaire & more Chameleons than Joy Division, but always recognizable as Lycia.

In this way, Empty Space is a return to the original atmospheric post-punk style Lycia helped birth back in the late-80's, before 1991's groundbreaking Ionia & 1993's apocalyptic A Day In The Stark Corner. The return to form was made authentic by the involvement of original member John Fair (drum programs) & long time member David Galas (bass), who once again teamed up with Mike VanPortfleet & Tara VanFlower to create what would be this, the final Lycia album.
