Before we get onto the video for Michaela May’s new single ‘Lights Out’, it’s probably worth going back and having a little listen to the track that had us at ‘hello’ back in February this year; the rather smashing ‘1954‘.
Brilliantly, Michaela takes the opportunity to refresh our memories a little in the opening scenes of the clip for her new single ‘Lights Out’; the home movies (and lights) are out, ‘1954’ is the soundtrack and we’re ready to play.
And it’s clear from early on in the new track that if ‘1954’ was merely the teaser, ‘Lights Out’ gives us every indication that the now Canadian-based starlet knows more than a thing or two about creating seriously fabulous pop music… with a message.
“‘Lights Out’ is about a relationship that has lost it’s spark and has gone stale. Neither party is getting what they need anymore,” Michaela explains. “But even though times are tough, the song is about not giving up on the relationship. I wrote this song pulling from personal experience but also because i think it’s such a common occurrence in long term relationship – you both love each other but you’ve drifted apart; so how can you get back to being ‘crazy in love?”
Get onto it, pop kids. Michaela May is ready to make serious waves.
