Zoon: Light Prism

Bleached Wavves is the debut album by Canadian dreampop act, Zoon, coming out in its entirety on June 19th, 2020 through Paper Bag Records. The album has been previously introduced with a pair of singles now followed with Light Prism, the third cut that further illustrates the band's colorful dreampop sound and off-kilter psychedelic nature.

"Light Prism is a memory collage," says aboriginal songwriter and creative force behind the Zoon moniker, Daniel Monkman "Parts of it are from my time teaching around Turtle Island, while other imagery is of my home town of Selkirk. Selkirk was effected heavily by drugs and gangs and with that came deaths of youth whom I'd known. So musically I wanted it to be gentle. I didn’t want the song to have a chorus with a vocal melody so I created a sample from scratch, spliced it up and reversed it to create an abstract instrumental melody. 'Light' prism is also about reflection and being able to put things to rest."

Zoon comes from the Ojibway word 'Zoongide’ewin', and stands for 'bravery, courage, the Bear Spirit', becoming an accordant epithet to the project's creative intent.

Light Prism comes attached to a hazy, well stylized and textured video directed by Drew Rutty who after the video's creation went on to join Zoon as the band's bassist.
