In a world beset with trodden paths and colorless possibilities, 27 take the road less traveled to arrive at a striking collusion of understatement and melody. On their first EP for Hydra Head, the former trio - now a freshly minted quartet - fashion a dazzling departure from previous recordings, incorporating a sweeping array of instrumentations led by the seraphic inflections of Maria Christopher. With musical and vocal cameos from members of Isis, Let the Light In represents 27 at their most dramatic and alluring.
