Bringing together the crisp and clean nature of contemporary pop, with a clear fusion of influences from reggae to rock and the indie-pop anthems of a simpler era, Canada’s The Steadies lead with strength of songwriting and a notably eclectic sound throughout their latest single.
Increasingly infectious as it pours through, Light Me Up ultimately morphs into an alt-pop hit with a notable potential to impress in a live setting.
Featuring lyrical optimism and vocal brightness, the single introduces The Steadies as unconfined by genre – led by a distinct passion for music in all of its forms.
There’s an uplifting core to the track, a sense of oneness, intimacy and possibility, and all of this translates well – gifting the song’s audience a similar sense of positivity as the music rains down.
Far from their first release, Light Me Up simply draws focus to the latter half of a busy year for the band. Their unique approach to making music, somewhat fearless in its blending of styles, makes for a refreshing alternative – and generally promises that no two releases will be the same.
Unpredictable at heart, The Steadies are one to watch.
