WALES' LIGHTS THAT CHANGE RELEASES NEW SINGLE

"A radiosexy reinvigoration of early 4AD spirit" - Joe Foster (Creation Records)

" A haunting, shimmering, deceptively simple slice of widescreen shoegaze" - Producer Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid)

FOR FANS OF: Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins,The Cure, This Mortal Coil, Marissa Nadler

Lights That Change is an alternative dreampop ethereal wave outfit, hailing from North Wales and headed by Marc Joy. After many years producing other artists, he finally turned his attention towards his own creative endeavours. Thus was born Lights That Change, channeling new energies into creating horizons of perfect dreamscapes, primarily based on guitars.

Lights That Change released their debut EP ‘Rainbow On Your Shoulder’ in 2013, followed by ‘Whispers in February’ and have received support from BBC, Tom Robinson, and Amazing Radio, among others.

Over the past year, Lights That Change have undergone a reformation, with Mandy Clare on vocals, John Bryan on bass and Marc Joy on guitars. They are now gearing up to release their debut LP ‘Byzantium’ this summer, which includes guest vocals from Rebecca Palin (Golden Fable) and drum programming from Mal Holmes (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark).

“I’m extremely happy to be involved in Lights That Change,” says Mal Holmes. “This has given me the freedom to create something special for ‘Voices’ and the new album doing what I love to do … this is why I started playing drums in the first place”.

We proudly present the first single from this forthcoming album, entitled ‘Voices’, loaded with ethereal wave post-punk magic reminiscent of 4AD’s golden era. Here Mandy Clare lays mesmerizing vocals over a bed of drifting, powerfully moving soundscapes. Lights That Change will also be bringing their new permanent lineup to U.K. live audiences soon.

lyrics

Queens, wives and slaves
Of Mycenae
Bound so tight and sent away

One single night
Gave sacrifice
Then sold abroad to friendless homes

In circle mound
By standing stones
Embossed motifs will tell and show

Fragments rejoined, not man or horse
A shape re-formed
Priestess adorned

Fall back through time
Through stone and iron
And wonder how she came to die

Legend and myth, one to the next
Such frosted glass
Her face eclipsed

Illuminate
To contemplate
On shadows of queens, wives and slaves

Illuminate
To contemplate
On shadows of queens, wives and slaves
