Our love of Canadian starlet Lights has been enduring for almost six years now, although admittedly it was only during a flying visit to Hong Kong in early 2010 that we finally picked up a copy of her brilliant debut album ‘The Listening’.
She’s been an enduring star on Canada’s pop landscape since her debut self-titled EP dropped seven and a half years ago, consistently churning out quality electronic-leaning pop that has seen her become a regular on the charts in her homeland.
And though her latest single ‘Running With The Boys’ was released back in September, it’s only now that she’s popped out a music video to complement it.
In it, she reminisces about ‘the old times’, when she and her mates would run amok on their bikes, wearing crazy masks, chilling by the pool and riding down to the local swimming spot.
We can’t help but think that musically, Lights’ style isn’t too far removed from that of Brit star Ellie Goulding. And if she can conquer our charts, there’s no reason Lights couldn’t follow suit.
