LYRIC VIDEO PREMIERE: Lights feat. Owl City - "Cactus in the Valley (Acoustic)"
Though she's probably better known for electro-pop songs, Lights' has no trouble stripping her music down and going acoustic. Exhibit A: this version of "Cactus in the Valley" from her upcoming album "Siberia Acoustic." For the acoustic version of "Cactus in the Valley," a piano and strings accompany vocals from Lights and Owl City. The lyrics — unchanged from the original — demonstrate Lights' innate songwriting ability. Take this chorus for example:
"And wipe the mark of madness from my face / Show me that your love will never change / If my yesterday is a disgrace / Tell me that you still recall my name"
For the lyric video, Lights makes use of a good old fashioned pen and paper, writing out the lyrics to the song on composition pages. The handwritten text and stop motion camera make for an effective visual with a personal touch.
