AUDIO: Valerie Lighthart – “Pt. III: The Banshee”
Mystical folk pop artist Valerie Lighthart concludes her “By Moonlight” trilogy with “The Banshee” out now. It’s three songs where Lighthart enters sorcerous electronica territory, even incorporating an 808’s beat juxtaposed with playful wonder in “Walkin’ Slowly.” The EP is one about reclamation, power, and conquering; Lighthart embodies a dominating character who haunts her enemies and cleanses her narrative of any invasive influence. Over the years, Valerie Lighthart has become one of the most inventive and versatile pop creatives in Milwaukee, bridging powerful fantasies with imaginative execution as she bridges vintage aesthetics with modern production. Visuals for “Monster” will be out next.
