Today sees the release of ‘Light of My Life’ from the brilliant Motel Sundown. We first featured the Liverpool based trio in January with their debut single ‘Chicago’, while last week we shouted their latest release ‘Something Always’. If you’ve heard either of those tracks, you’ll know that the group, comprised of Naomi Campbell, Karen Turley and Rob Johnson, have something very special to offer.
The newest single, ‘Light of My Life’ is a wonderful slice of Americana, Country and folk that the trio create brilliantly. The track is an ode to a loved one who is no longer with us. Lyrics such as ‘You’re an angel, that much is true, I’ve never known a love like you‘ and ‘Light of my life, you know you are, shining always with the stars‘, create a brilliant tribute. The songs builds throughout, with the brilliant vocal harmonies creating a choir-like feel – you can almost imagine the song being recorded/performed in a church, the track with an epic feel by the end.
Motel Sundown are already feeling like one of the finds of the year in 2020. No, let’s upgrade that to favourite find of the year in 2020. I cannot wait to see what comes next from the trio.
