A few days ago Ålesund released the single, ‘Lightning‘, which is a song about the life changing decisions you make and taking that leap of faith towards change! The atmosphere starts off with hand claps and some light synths. It continues to build throughout the song into a vibrant beacon of light. Passionate vocals soar with an emotive depth befitting the lyrical message. This inspirational message in ‘Lightning‘ will certainly inspire you to take a leap of faith! Here’s what Ålesund had to say about ‘Lightning‘:
“Lightning was written about that feeling you have before making a big life decision, or waiting for another to make that decision which will in turn impact your own life. When you just need to pluck up the courage and take the plunge into the unknown; However, if you truly trust and believe in something, good things will come out of it.”
“With all the negativity in the world, I wanted to create something uplifting and optimistic,” she says. There’s been so much this year: Covid, BLM, Extinction Rebellion, the US elections. Things were hard enough without summing it all up in song form.”
“Making this kept us all moving,” says Alba. “Trying to bring a bit of light into our lives was important. The experience of spending some time together and really focussing on something in detail was essential for us. If music is supposed to do anything it’s bring people together. We hope when people listen to our latest offering it brings some happiness and hope!”
