Today, Lobate Scarp released their brand new song, “Beautiful Light,” off their upcoming second album, You Have it All. I highly recommend it to all of you – a fantastic style of upbeat prog rock with clean production and a lovely 70s “golden age of prog” feel to it. Check out the song, and if you can, please support their kickstarter campaign. Anyone who supports the Kickstarter for the second album gets an instant download of “Beautiful Light” in either mp3 or WAV format.

Lobate Scarp is a progressive space-opera rock band based in Los Angeles. Their influences range from classic prog-rock of the 70’s such as Genesis and Yes, to 80’s pop such as Simple Minds and Tears for Fears, as well as strong ties to musical theater. Their debut Time and Space was made possible in 2012 by a successful Kickstarter campaign and has since received accolades from all over the world, played on radio shows, podcasts, as well as had reviews published in numerous music publications such as Music Connection, Yes Music Podcast, Prog Archives, Electric Freedom, Empire Music, Progshine, and Progarchy.
“The group Lobate Scarp presents prog rock that hits you right between the eyes. This band’s rich melodies flow naturally like a stream, while the songs are broken down into movements much like a symphony”. -‐ Music Connection
