Canadian electro pop starlet Lights has long been one of my favourite musicians. A friend of mine sent me her debut album The Listening not long after it’s release and it actually took me a while to get into it. My music taste circa 2009 was mostly made up of rock and punk so this bubblegum synth pop was alien to me. Slowly, but surely though it grew on me until eventually I knew the album from front to back. Even since then I’ve been a huge fan, even parting with my hard earned pound to purchase not only her next few albums, but also signed merchandise. Follow up album Siberia was a much gritter, darker affair, fusing dubstep and pop to create a more mature album than it’s predecessor. Such was the success of Siberia that it prompted Lights to release an acoustic version of the album aptly titled Siberia Acoustic. Her fan base has since spread worldwide and I for one always felt she was on the cusp of massive commercial success. Little Machines marks album number three for Lights and I for one could not wait to get my hands on it.
