Independent hard rock band Burden of the Sky released its cover of the Ellie Goulding hit song ‘Lights’ over the weekend.
The band debuted the video for its cover of Goulding’s song ‘Lights’ Friday through ghostcultmag.com. The video features the band performing its take on the song in a darkened setting, with only a handful of lights behind, creating silhouettes of the band. The band talked about the video treatment in its interview.
The song’s musical arrangement takes the source material and infuses it with a pop punk sound a la Alien Ant Farm’s cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal.’
Additionally, the band talked about its cover of Goulding’s song in a prepared statement.
“We chose to cover ‘Lights’ because it connects us with our universal fear of the dark,” the statement reads. “We all know what it feels like to be alone and frightened in a dark place; paralyzed by fear and uncertainty. It’s a fear that is rooted in our fear of the unknown – our undeniable lack of control. We feel this song inspires courage where there is fear and we want to shine some light to those who feel lost in the dark.”
