WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Lights “Saviour”

Though Siberia may be Ontario’s Lights’ (Valerie Poxleitner) second  album, it’s Siberia that’s been ramping up more and more attention for the 24 year-old Poxleitner. She’s already raked in a Juno Award for ‘Best New Artist’, toured both as part of the Warped Tour and with Keane and collaborated with Holy F*** and Shad on her latest release. With her influences ranging from Bjork to Phil Collins, The Knife and ABBA, the young Poxleitner unabashedly hammers dance beats and dubstep pep as the backdrop for one tiny but crystal clear voice. Even AbsolutePunk is singing the praises of Lights, saying “The production on Siberia is pristine. Lights teamed up with Canadian electro quartet of Holy [F***] to mix…some of the tracks, turning them into colossal movers and shakers. It’s incredibly accessible as the melodies and choruses stick.” Check out the video for “Saviour” from Lights’ debut album The Listening.

91.7 FM WMSE welcomes Lights to the Turner Hall Ballroom tonight, with Rubik. 8 p.m. All-ages.
