Final Light is the one-time only project featuring Perturbator and Cult of Luna guitarist and vocalist Johannes Persson. The project recently revealed itself at Roadburn 2022 and will release its self-titled record on June 24. The duo is now streaming the industrial new track “Final Light” alongside a cinematic video directed by TKY.
“It was an honour,” said Perturbator mastermind James Kent. “I immediately thought of Cult of Luna. Even though my music is mostly electronic and synth-based, we both have a knack forc reating atmospheres, so I thought it would be a very interesting match.”
Kent and Johannes first met only months before working on the project when Johannes attended a Perturbator show in Stockholm. “I’ve been a fan for a long, long time,” Johannes said. “We had this creative discussion back and forth and we hit it off.”
“It was immediate,” added Kent. “We had almost an hour of interesting music, so it would’ve been a shame to simply perform it and not do anything with it afterwards. It’s a project that I really want to share; it’s not only the fruit of a collaboration between me and one of my favourite musicians, but also very unique and once-in-a-lifetime.”
