New Music: 7000apart – Lights Go Down

7000apart are a Stockholm, Sweden-based indie pop duo who have featured on this blog a few times before. Last summer, they appeared in Jane’s Monthly Favourites round up, and she even posed them some questions in an interview. Then, at the beginning of this year, she ran the rule over their EP Feel Your Feelings – Side A. Now it’s my turn to share some of their music. Their latest is called Lights Go Down.

By Graeme Smith

Lights Go Down is a track that instantly hits you with its emotional soundscape. It quickly develops into a brooding yet lively pop number, with quick fire vocal delivery in the verse and a soaring singalong chorus. It’s the percussive hook that really sticks with you. 7000apart really know how to create a catchy pop track with substance.

7000apart are married couple Amelie Eiding and Jonathan Kresin. They originally met in Jon’s home country of the United States, and their performing name refers to the time when Amelie returned home to Sweden and the two did the long distance thing, 7,000 kilometres apart. They have a new album on the way, Feel Your Feelings, working with GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter FEMKE.

You can give Lights Go Down a listen below.
