Peaking Lights are back at it. While the clouds of pessimism hover, rays of sunshine cut and break thru with two new tracks for healing and conquering the shadows that loom. Little Flower featuring Chloë Sevigny for Regime Des Fleurs was curated by fashion sound guru Michel Gaubert to play during fashion week on Valentines Day 2016. Over the summer of 2016, Peaking Lights was approached by DJ Harvey’s camp for the instrumental version for sweaty times so for some of you this tune may ring familiar; however, this is the first time it’s been released to the public. The vocal version features Chloë Sevigny with a beautiful melancholic yet powerful chant to Saint Therese an alchemical figure who’s words “What matters in life is not great deeds but great love” ring true thru time. Peaking Lights production is a playfully psychedelic mid tempo love jam with a lot of groove.
On the flip is Conga Blue with the instrumental to follow. An upbeat weirdo disco cut laying it down at 120bpm with some dreamy vocals with a catchy line “through dark and doom can flowers bloom?” as the solid rhythm section holds it together while melodies float by and the clav and synths ride the groove. Originally this cut was released digitally in March 2016 one year later it’s on wax.
