With this new 2-track single, the cinematic electronic project LIGHTS A.M. (aka Erlend Eilertsen of ESSENCE OF MIND) announces his forthcoming conceptual full length album “Stories Without Words”.
More than ever, the Norwegian artist focuses on deep emotions and intimate moments by letting his machines speak through these two instrumental cuts evoking once again the acknowledge influence of legendary artists like VANGELIS, BRIAN ENO, TANGERINE DREAMS or yet OMD.
While “A Mystery After Sunset” showcases the darker and more mystical soundscapes of LIGHTS A.M., the title track “Agnes” is the most touching song for which a video clip is also simultaneously released, made from private footage and images, adding a visual dimension to this heartwarming tribute that Erlend wrote when he lost his beloved Griffon dog companion named Agnes who shared his life for some 16 years along with her best friend Mogwai, also deeply missed…
As Erlend explains it himself with nostalgia in his voice: “Agnes was and still is a big part of me, my family and close friends life. She’s been an inspiration, a support and a best friend for me, and has brought me a lot during all the years we spent together. We did so much fun and memorable things together, she even was part of the first promo pics for my first band back in the days…”.
Timeless electronic music from the north teaching us that stories can indeed be told without words…
