WATCH: Lights Releases Official Video For ‘Portal’
Ahhh we love Lights! Everything about the Candian electro-pop musician has us captivated. Her adorbale on-stage presence, sweet demeanor, love for her fans, and devotion to her craft makes her nothing short of inspirational.
The 27-year-old new mom has just released her official video for, “Portal,” the first track off her upcoming album, Little Machines.
The video is beautifully shot in black and white, as Lights drives a vintage convertible down a wooded highway, which she later leaves behind as she searches for the portal within the forest.
The songs is beautiful, haunting, and every thing we’ve come to expect from Lights.
In a statement about the song, Lights explained the significance of “Portal.”
“There are so many things that make “Portal” special to me,” she said. “It started as a one-chord experiment and was finished in New Mexico on a solo writing getaway. The drumbeat of the song is actually comprised of me recording baby belly drumming when I was full term with my daughter. This video is no ordinary video. Myself and a small, talented crew spent the day in an unworldly glade about an hour outside Toronto meandering through elvish woods and driving old cars. It was perfect.”
