Eliza and the Bear | Light It Up

Anyone who's read the blog in recent months will know just how much I advocate Eliza and the Bear. There really isn't much they can't do as a band; from delicate falsetto fronted compositions to in your face rip-roaring guitar sections, they really have it all. As the London quintet prepare the release of their new EP on August 3rd through Mi Familia Music, they return with a stream to its title track, Light It Up. With harmony driven vocals forming its foundations, immersed in exuberant strings, the band disgorge their most receptive state yet moulding their sound in to a crescendo of swelling percussion and rhythmic ecstasy. "Light it up is about making a positive change to your way of life and when times get rough, doing something about it" claims lead singer James Kellegher, and I couldn't agree more. Take a listen above for yourselves.
