Rosie H Sullivan Shares New Single ‘Lights’

Scottish singer and songwriter Rosie H Sullivan has just shared her brand new single Lights, a melancholic piece of folk/acoustic music out now via Nettwerk Music. 
Lights is a song about a failed relationship and the realisation that a past partner was not her true light, but merely a ‘spark’. This gem boasts the honesty and vulnerability listeners have come to expect from Rosie. I adore how gentle and packed with raw, honest emotion her vocal delivery is, gliding beautifully over the captivating production. With elegant lyricism and stunning melodies, the singer perfectly summarises the range of emotions felt when waiting for our own light to be ignited. Apart from her stunning vocals, I am particularly fond of the intricate acoustic guitar-based melody and how it is seamlessly intertwined with gentle harmonies on the cello played by Rachel Wilson, creating an overall warm and intimate atmosphere perfect for those reflective days home alone. Have a listen to this gem below!



Rosie H Sullivan said:
This song is my ode to love, and everything it brings to people’s lives. I’ve grown up surrounded by people in love, but I do recognise that it can take a long time to find someone who makes you shine, and I wanted to touch on that within Lights. It’s a song about love, but also the journey to finding it.
The recording of this track was full of surprises. At first, I didn’t imagine Lights sounding as raw as it ended up, but as soon as I listened back with my producer Ross Hamilton, I was obsessed. I love that you can hear the creaks from the guitar as I play, I think it adds so much character to the track. I had also originally envisioned a fiddle accompaniment, but I am so glad we went with cello; Rachel was amazing to work with. During the last chorus, she unexpectedly went down to the bass note and my stomach dropped. It was perfect! This song is so much more than I ever imagined it could be, and it fills my heart with joy.
