By Keeyahtay Lewis

Sometimes I go to a show and I have almost no idea of what to expect. Friday March 2nd was one of those nights. I was at the historic Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ to cover Lights. I knew she was pretty. I knew she had tattoos. I knew she played keyboards. I had heard a couple songs. That is where my knowledge stopped. I really didn’t know what to expect. The show was sold out …

LIGHTS rolls out her new video for the song “Banner”, the second official single from her acclaimed album Siberia.

Directed and conceptualized by Sean Michael Turrell (MSTRKRFT, Tegan & Sara) the clip places Lights in a Road Warrior-inspired post-apocalyptic world.

CD Review: LIGHTS – The Listening

October 19, 2009 drainu182 0

Review by Kevin Kenny

A few months ago I heard the single “Saviour,” by LIGHTS and found it intriquing. I enjoyed it quite a bit but was afraid when she released her LP The Listening, it would be monotonous both in lyrics and musically like most pop music. As a listener of all genres of music, it’s difficult to enjoy newer pop music because much of it tends to vacillate between being annoying bubblegum pop cheese and obnoxiously hip/vulgar. …
