Green Lights Flashing opens with a swelling, textured composition that immediately envelopes you with atmosphere. Percussive beats give way to rich bass while Hattie’s honeyed vocals stay ever present, anchoring the expansive electronic arrangement to something human. It’s beautiful how both Seb and Hattie have a clear voice in the track, and they work so well together.

The track is their first release since their 2021 EP Softer. You can give Green Lights Flashing a listen below.
