Lights That Change - Voices

Lights That Change is an alternative dreampop ethereal wave outfit, hailing from North Wales and headed by producer Marc Joy. Over the past year, Lights That Change have undergone a reformation, with Mandy Clare on vocals, John Bryan on bass and Marc Joy on guitars. They plan ot release their debut album ‘Byzantium’ soon via UK-Canadian label Raphalite Records. Like this single, the LP will feature guest vocals by Rebecca Palin (Golden Fable) and drums by Malcolm Holmes (Orchestral Maneuvers In The Dark). 
“I’m extremely happy to be involved in Lights That Change,” says Malcolm Holmes. “This has given me the freedom to create something special for ‘Voices’ and the new album doing what I love to do … this is why I started playing drums in the first place”
Lights That Change released their debut EP ‘Rainbow On Your Shoulder’ in 2013, followed by ‘Whispers in February’ and have received notable support from BBC, Tom Robinson, and Amazing Radio, among others.  Louder Than War has premiered the new single 'Voices', which was released on May 11. The newly-released video is simultaneously premiering in New York's 30thirdand3rd andJammerzine.
The single ‘Voices’ is chalked full of ethereal wave post-punk magic reminiscent of 4AD’s golden era.  Here Mandy Clare lays mesmerizing vocals over a bed of drifting, powerfully moving soundscapes.  The video is just as captivating.

"I listened to the track hundreds of times to get a solid feel for the music. Images fell into place in my mind and then I reproduced them on the screen," explains British filmographer Jason Sheppard, who created this video.  "This has a lovely gothic feel to the sound but also a soundtrack theme to it. A soundtrack to your life."
