New singles: “trendsetters” + “the worst days of our lives”
I haven’t posted about it here, but Kid Lightbulbs has two new singles!
This song has existed in some form since 2012, and is a musing on (to quote LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy) losing one’s edge. Starts as a high tempo industrial folk banger, and gradually devolves in a slow burn to guitar noise…. with a few chants and such.
Mary’s guest vocals came from a session in early 2014 that really brought this song together and allowed for the slow-burn second half to exist.
“The worst days of our lives”
I wrote this back in 2014. This is a synthpop track inspired by Depeche Mode and early 2010s electronic acts using a lot of side-chain compression. It’s also a confession of hitting a bottom of some sorts, and feeling optimistic about the way back up.Posted on February 5, 2024 #music #updates
