LIGHTS & MOTION "Save Your Heart"
Epic. Stunning. Moving. Deep. Spectacular. Brilliant. Magical. Inspirational. Captivating. Masterful. Perfect. Those are just a handful of the words used by the media to describe the music of cinematic post-rock powerhouse LIGHTS & MOTION. The band's debut, Reanimation, has been called "the greatest debut album in post-rock history" and "album of the year" by several critics. And believe you me, they're weren't lying. Now imagine having a sophomore full-length ready for release just several months later? Few artists would yearn to be standing in shoes that big, smothered in pressure, knee deep in expectation. Enter LIGHTS & MOTION's braintrust: 25 year old self-taught, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, producer, engineer, mixer and musical savant Christoffer Franzen. On his own, Franzen created every song on Save Your Heart in real-time during late night insomniac sessions awash in pure accident, imagination and improvisation. "A year in the making and a many lonely nights have crystallized themselves into my new album Save Your Heart. This isn't just music to me. This IS me. It's my past and my present, it's my confidence and my insecurities, it's my brightest days and my darkest nights. Every day, I do my best not to lose sight of my dreams. I'm happy, excited and humbled to be sharing with you what I have been dreaming about lately..." says Franzen. And the results? History. Tears of wonder, respect and admiration for the sheer magnitude and utter beauty of Save Your Heart will run down many a face after just one listen, as they did mine. This is what it sounds like in Heaven above. This is the music of angels... |
