New England alternative-rock band Light It Up have just released a transfigurative cover of Halsey’s ‘Eyes Closed’. The five-piece female fronted band have only been together since September 2016, yet they have already supported the likes of We The Kings, Hawthorne Heights, Metro Station and Cute Is What We Aim For and have been stylistically compared to Bring Me The Horizon and PVRIS.
The cover track manages to seamlessly blend the emotional feel of the original with a newly charged spirit. The melodic intro has an absorbing, almost-ethereal sound, before the hefty drums and solid guitars of the chorus bring us crashing down to the musical fires below. It brings a fierceness to the lyrics, managing to remain firmly within the pop-rock genre whilst still pushing boundaries. Light It Up will gain fans at a rapid pace if they continue to produce such a sound.
