Lydia Partner With Lauren Ruth Ward On ‘Red Lights’
It’s a pained, bittersweet, but often beautiful new song…
By Robin Murray
Arizona alt-pop three-piece Lydia aren’t about to start pulling their punches.
An excellent live force, the trio took their energetic sound into the studio with revered producer Eric Palmquist, focussing on a new batch of songs.
Forthcoming album ‘Liquor’ collects the results, a potent brew of choppy riffs, infectious melodies, and lyrics that make incisions on personal moments in their lives.
Label mate Lauren Ruth Ward guests on new song ‘Red Lights’, a song of parting, a realising that a relationship has come to an end.
Vocalist/guitarist Leighton Antelman says that the composition is ”about a last night out with a loved one before both going our separate ways”.
Of the collaboration, Antelman comments: “I always loved a back and forth, call and answer, dialogue on a track. Lauren is a friend that I had a great time collaborating with and met through our label. With her on the second verse and chorus it lets the song come alive in a whole other fashion.”
