Lightning Bug Unveil Video for New ‘September Song, pt ii’

    Lightning Bug have unveiled a new track from their upcoming album A Color of The SkyIt’s called ‘September Song, pt. ii’ and it arrives with an accompanying video filmed on a small island off of the coast of Maine. Check out the clip, directed and choreographed by Sarah Bolander, below.

    “In summer of 2018 I spent about a month camping alone on this cliff on a small island in the Baltic Sea,” frontowman Audrey Kang, who features in the song’s video alongside Bolander, explained in a statement. “There where I was in the north off the coast of Stockholm, the sun was setting insanely late, like at 11pm and it took hours longer than normal. So I’d watch it disappear, this glowing orb sink into the sea every night to the point where I felt kind of insane, like I was hallucinating…and I started reliving memories but they felt like they were right before me and then I felt confused, was I reliving memories, or seeing into the future? I kept thinking to myself, each end is a beginning, each end is a beginning. So this surreal experience with time lay dormant in me, and then an entire year later, I was camping in the PNW, also on the shore, and I watched the sun sink into the sea, and suddenly those sunsets from Sweden rippled through me again very vividly. And when I came back to New York, I wrote this song.”

    A Color of the Sky is set for release on June 25 via Fat Possum. Previously, Lightning Bug shared the single ‘The Right Thing Is Hard to Do’, which landed on our Best New Songs segment.
