THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
The Northern Lights are just amazing. Such dreamy synthwave we often categorise as dreamwave, does deserve a great mention. Get set for an album full of reverberated drums and more wickedness, with synths leading you all the way to the stars.
‘Home Movies’ just breaths the air of relaxation from their time of production. Claims of the album to have been written over the course of two weeks as a film soundtrack in the Florida Keys, surely comes through here in the atmosphere set out.
Some more upbeat songs on the album like ‘Ready player One’, ‘Arcade Date’ and ‘Boys of Summer’ (the latter one being a total guitar shredder) are super fun, with some nice chiptune leads twirling through, still carrying that deep haze of dreamy nostalgia. while ‘Feeling The Night’, with vocals by Becky Williams does a great job of creating a summery pop song.
Overall a great album by the Northern Lights. Just what you need in the month of August, going in to the later phase of hot and long days and setting the stage for a sultry Indian Summer.
