Anyone here like Lights? I personally love her music and think she's amazing, and has an amazing voice, and smile.

 

check her out if you havent heard of her.

 

discuss what your favourite song of hers is and other general discussions about her.

 

my favourtie is Cactus In The Valley acoustic.

I like her, but her music is kind of hit and miss for me. Some of it is actually really good, surprisingly so, but some of it is really terrible. For example the songs off her new album with the rappers in them.

yes thats true, some of her songs are not great. I really like her acoustic versions she puts on youtube.

Whats your favourite song?

I thought "Quiet" and "And Counting..." were really good.

Ive heard of her, but never listened to any of her stuff, no idea where to start.  It'd be appreciated.  Or just list your favorite songs

well cactus in the valley is really good, also the songs above. Toes is also quite good, and i love february air.

Check her out, she's not for everyone.

I have the exact same problem with her that I do with Owl City, which is appropriate given that they've done some work together.  Some of the songwriting is really cool, and I love a lot of the synth work, but her vocals can drive me up the wall, they're just way too cutesy.  I've seen people lament that she doesn't do enough acoustic + vocal material, but that's exactly what I don't want, personally.

Haha, I don't like Owl City's vocals in the same way. He just sounds like a more bubblegum-y wannabe Ben Gibbard to me.

thats true, but i prefer lights to owl city. I hardly listen to owl city.

Its true that light's acoustic videos and music are much better than some of her normal stuff. But the synths and things are really good on a few songs.

I wish they could take the instrumental mixes of their songs and then have people like Imogen Heap or Andy Bell overdub the vocal lines, and then we'd have magic.  I think Owl City's "Galaxies," for example, is an excellent electropop song for testing bass impact, treble sparkliness, and soundstage, but I just wish someone else was singing the melody.

just listened to Galaxies, really good song, and its true that his vocals are not the best.

If all you guys like Lights check Eden Couch on You Tube, Personaly I think she has a better voice than lights, but she certainly looks like her.
