Gone Hollywood: Listen to Night Lights’ sparkling new single, ‘Take My Hand’


Last time we chilled out with Night Lights, the young rock band was playing our 2015 Boston & Beyond party with Berklee down at South By Southwest (apply to play the 2016 edition here). Since that show nearly a year ago, the formerly Boston-based Night Lights have relocated to the West Coast, and their story has even generated some nice early buzz in their new home of Los Angeles.

This week, they’re back with what we think is their first single since heading west: A glowing, radio-ready alt-pop nugget called “Take My Hand”. Building on the promise of their early singles crafted while they were Bostonians, “Take My Hand” is augmented by a fair bit of SoCal sunshine and ambition, and should continue to bring the lads increased attention, positioning them alongside the likes of Walk The Moon and Grouplove.

“If this song hits home for you and brings someone to mind,” the band writes, “let them know you love them.”


FM rock radio, or whatever’s left of it, kindly take note.
