Cause and Effect

Cause & Effect: White Laces


White Laces are a band from Richmond, VA. The cassette reissue Sick of Summercombines the band’s first self-titled EP from 2011 with various vinyl-only tracks released before the band’s first proper LP, Moves. All the tracks have been remastered and serve as a reminder of when the band were so loud they were banned from venues due to sheer volume.

Their new record No Floor was recorded primarily at home in 2015 with additional overdubs made at Richmond’s own Spacebomb Studios and was mixed at Uniform Record in Philadelphia, PA by Jeff Zeigler in early 2016. The record finds the band foregoing their traditional guitar/bass/drums setup to explore more electronic and sample-based composition and introduces three-part harmonies featuring the band’s newest member on record, Tori Hovater. Live, the band has expanded into a tight five-piece unit who have spun the new material into an expansive cocoon of sound.
