The supercharged, anthemic single is a song about redemption and serves as the follow-up to DVRKO’s inaugural release, “This Is How” featuring Sarah De Warren, inspired by personal experiences in inescapable toxic relationships.
The elusive musician’s debut single clocked more than 1 million global streams in its first month of release and, shortly after, DVRKO revealed the official music video for “This is How,” featuring an attention-grabbing tale set against the backdrop of an industrialized, dystopian future. In contrast, DVRKO’s “Lights Up” features an accessible chorus, bouncy syncopation, and exudes a soaring feeling of optimism that is sure to chase away the blues.
Buoyant and building, “Lights Up” seizes music-lovers’ yearning for all that’s life-affirming with an unabashed, hands-in-the air exuberance. A true master of ceremonies, DVRKO is hiding-out in his tricked-out recording studio crafting maniacally good tunes with “Lights Up” dropping just in early July.
With an earworm for a topline and music festival-ready hook, “Lights Up” conjures the summer concert atmosphere with a promise that all is not lost. The vocal melody feels just right, like something from a dream that’s been yearning to be sung. DVRKO is here to lead the charge with his dynamic blend of swelling sonic climaxes and monstrous beats. “Lights Up” is a song of perseverance that feels like… hope.
