Second single from the forthcoming album it's a delightful and unashamed pop song.
League of Lights, an electronic pop-rock duo comprised of Farrah and Richard West, just released 'Modern Living', the second single from the forthcoming album ‘Dreamers Don’t Come Down’. The new single moves away from the art-pop approach from the previous one, 'Twenty Twenty One', bringing us a delightful and unashamed pop song and signaling the versatility of the band and a hint of what to expect for the future album.
‘Dreamers Don’t Come Down’, which can be pre-ordered on Burning Shed, was written and recorded during the 2020 spring/summer lockdown, with Farrah stating that “it is about the past, the present and the future; about taking the best from all that you have been through, the pressures of modern life and keeping your dreams alive in dark times”. Richard, describing their modus operandi for the album, explains that “we wanted it to be more piano-driven than our previous release and deliberately utilized a smaller pallet of sounds. We had just recorded the song ‘Modern Living’ and that helped to define how our new material would sound - more open than before with less synths and more space for Farrah's voice to really lift off. It's as much about the space as it is about the notes.”
Promoted with an anime video, the song is a three-minute indie club floorfiller underpinned by a chunky, distorted bass line, the addition of textured guitars and synth provide an effective accompaniment to Farrah’s commanding vocal performance.
