Alt-pop icon Lights and LŪN breaking down boundaries with new track ‘Okay Okay (LŪN Remix)’
Produced by the artist’s enigmatic alter-ego LŪN, the remix morphs the upbeat track – which first appeared on Lights’ critically acclaimed album PƎP – into an ethereal soundscape amidst a pulsing beat and driving bass. “Okay Okay (LŪN Remix)” is available now via Fueled By Ramen.
In September, Lights debuted the official video for “Okay Okay.” Shot and directed by Lights herself, the meta visual finds the artist digitally connecting with multiple alter-egos in search of an idea for the “Okay Okay” music video. The video is streaming now on Lights’ official YouTube channel.
PƎP was heralded by early singles “In My Head (ft. Josh Dun),” “Salt and Vinegar,” “Real Thing feat. Elohim,” “Prodigal Daughter.” The record racked up critical acclaim upon release, with NPR lauding the collection’s “insanely catchy hooks” and tipping the artist as “ready for world domination.” Popcrush raved, “…the LP effortlessly bounds across genres and provides the sonic pep talk we all need,” while Under The Radar attested, “PEP is a gift—cathartic, rebellious, intimate, and alive in its glow.” Single “In My Head (ft. Josh Dun),” premiered via Consequence, who raved about the “anthemic” song and praised the accompanying video which takes “…the unusual and avant garde to a new level.” EDM.com celebrated “Salt and Vinegar” for “bringing [Lights’] artistic vision full circle,” while Consequence attested single “Prodigal Daughter” “…is a driving, infectious pop cut that shows off Lights’ enigmatic and soulful voice… she’s never sounded so uninhibited.” Rock Sound hailed the “vibrantly joyous” track and asserted, “it’s Lights at her most dominant, confident and unstoppable.”
Alongside the album release, Lights also shared “The Clinic,” a new side story based off Lights’ Skin&Earth comic series. Written and illustrated exclusively by Lights herself.
