13.10.2023 : RELEASE On ‘Glitterspit’, DEAD LIGHTS presents modern EBM moulded into catchy songs with surgical precision. Bass-heavy, buzzing magnetism with pummeling, yet groovy, mechanical rhythms. All this delivered with an ’80s UK synth-pop, glam-goth flair and an urgency that is tangible as DEAD LIGHTS lyrically delve into the darker side of the human condition, and skewering life in the social media age with a savage wit and poetic flair. The 11 songs on their 2nd album are filled with massive synth bass lines and gritty sounds, elaborate vocal arrangements and brutal, industrial dance beats for the dance floor, your headphones as well as your living room.

LET THE UGLY OUT
15.09.2023 - RELEASE New single & video! We live in an age where we see everyone’s face through a filter. We have a generation raised in a digital world of artificially enhanced people, projecting literally unattainable beauty standards. Day after day, we’re bombarded with an endless deluge of these images, images of people so heavily doctored and processed that they begin to fall into the uncanny valley, they’re that far removed from what a real person looks like. Comparing yourself to this tsunami of unreality can only destroy your self image, which is what's happening to many people across the world. There's a body-dysmorphia crisis happening, and it's not going away. This song is a show of solidarity and defiance. We're all perfectly imperfect. There's no filter for the real world, so tear that mask off, show what’s underneath and embrace every flaw. Respect and love yourself. Let the ugly out.

INTO THE NIGHT
08.2023 - RELEASE New single & video! Daylight is like an all-seeing-eye; we hide ourselves while it watches us. We try to act in a way that helps us conform and blend in with those around us. We function like a real person, but we are not our true selves. To our co-workers, casual acquaintances and passers by, we’re a cardboard cut-out of a human being, only giving half-smiles, small talk and pleasantries, nothing more. But, when the night comes, the world changes and our masks slip. We reveal more of ourselves. We indulge in our often hidden desires. We feel more free. We are released. We become real. ‘Into The Night’ is a celebration of this change, suitably dressed up as another high energy dancefloor banger.
I AM ELECTRIC
06.2023 - RELEASE New single & video! Electricity flows through all of us, in every human body, allowing us to move, think and feel. It gives us power and life, but as an element, it can also be chaotic, destructive and deadly. ‘I Am Electric’ describes all this inner energy, the body electric, becoming amplified beyond control. What would it feel like if a person was reduced to this raw element, just mindless energy, bursting out of a human shell and flowing into everything around them? On the one hand to lose all consciousness, but on the other, to join and become one with all other life, rejuvenating and destroying without thought or reason? This process would involve the death of the self, but in return, would grant a kind of life force that’s beyond our comprehension. In short, the song is a pure power trip about destruction, self-destruction, life and resurrection!

04.2023 - RELEASE New single and video! As well as being a pulsating electro monster, RECEIVER is - in a lyrical sense - about the relationship between a singer and the listener. The singer, being an unfamiliar, disembodied voice, just singing into the void, is hoping to be heard by someone. And another stranger - the listener - hearing this unknown voice and relating to the words being sung and, in turn, almost deifying the singer. It’s a unique kind of connection that is both incredibly real and entirely fictional.
