Coming from Denmark, Fred Seul tells life like it is truth his deep lyrics and deep voice. Lights Will Come (After Long) is the first chapter in that direction. Officially released as his debut single, the track talks about how Fred saved a friends life after a drug overdose. But is not only in the lyrics that we find inspiration.
When Lights Will Come starts, in its intense and hugely-bassed form, we feel a bit with no direction to go. Probably that is intentional. As the song grows the hooks somehow turn a bit softer, and the vocals guide the track into a more meaningful sonority. But is mainly half-way through the song that we were totally convinced. The guitar-based twist gives the listener the appropriate time to breathe and process the whole song. And once the melody turns right in, we can’t help to be fully engaged.
Lights Will Come is a rock-infused track that evolves into a sort-of post-rock anthem. And a vocal triumph in the way it sticks to its guns all the way through.
