Listen to Seven Lions & Lights' Enchanting Single 'Falling Away': Exclusive Premiere
The Santa Barbara native -- born Jeff Montalvo -- advanced a refreshing brand of melodic dubstep that was oft-imitated but seldom equaled, marked by ethereal melodies and lush, layered synth leads. His sound continued to evolve by incorporating choice house elements and arrangements on last year's excellent Worlds Apart EP and March's The Throes of Winter EP.
While Montalvo again trades the broken beats for four-to-the-floor on "Falling Away," the track boasts the same songwriting sensibility and careful attention to atmospheric detail that has consistently set Seven Lions' productions apart from his peers'. In a testament to his keen engineer's ear, Canadian singer Lights' coos and crescendos fit seamlessly within the track's aural tapestry.
Listen to the full premiere of "Falling Away" ft. Lights exclusively on Billboard:
"Falling Away" is the first in a series of singles that will precede Montalvo's new EP release on Casablanca Records later this year. Seven Lions' "Falling Away" ft. Lights will be available Aug. 14 through Casablanca Records.
