Maps & Atlases Lead The Way
Maps & Atlases has forged a new creative path for themselves with the June 1 release of, Lightlessness Is Nothing New, their first record since becoming a trio. All in all, the indie rock group hadn’t released an album in nearly six years. Lightlessness Is Nothing New — which deals primarily with the loss of lead vocalist Dave Davison’s father — has a much more dance-y feel than their past work, seemingly to depict the light at the end of the tunnel that often accompanies a period of grief. Fans can witness Maps & Atlases’ revival in person at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 20, as the band tours to promote their new release.
