New York alt-pop band The Influencers are proud to announce the release of their latest single Lightning. The track is a classic singer songwriter ballad, starting with simple acoustic guitar and vocals. As the song builds harmonies are rapidly layered until crashing guitar parts infuse into the chorus, giving the track an epic and unexpected twist.  

Lightning was written collaboratively by Evan (vocals), Steven (percussion) and the band's producers Rizzo and Brady. Here's what Evan had to say on the making of the song:

"The demo was pretty straight forward but didn’t tell us much about the production. Luckily Rizzo had a vision that made the song sound huge. And with the help of Steven, they kept layering and layering to make it sound as dramatic as the lyrics. It was a tough one as there were so many tracks. We have a tendency to keep layering and adding to the point that Pro Tools slows to a halt. But we love adding more and more until it creates something new." - Evan

Lightning is released through Tonotopic Records and is available everywhere from AUGUST 29th 2019 for you to buy and stream.
