SORRY – ” Let the Lights On “

Posted: August 2, 2022 in MUSIC

Sorry’s “Let the Lights On” is a literal banger. They’ve packed this danceable indie rock number full of klanging production, courtesy Portishead’s Adrian Utley, that sounds like they recorded in a kitchen supply store. No actual pots, pans or cheese graters were used, however, but they’ve cooked up a winning first taste from their second album, “Anywhere But Here”. “It’s a fun love song for the club,” say the band, but “Lights” is invitingly dark.

London once again features as a prominent character on Sorry’s second studio album, “Anywhere But Here”. ’If our first version of London in 925 was innocent and fresh-faced, then this is rougher around the edges. It’s a much more haggard place,’ Louis says. Earwigged conversations, text messages, snatched speech recorded underground; the city’s discarded words fed into the lyrics which map the experience of urban life on a young and frustrated generation. Produced and recorded in Bristol, the result is an angular, acerbic, bittersweet triumph.
