Up from the brutal lows of tragedy there can oftentimes be relief found in expression. Plenty of great music has been informed by unfathomable loss and that certainly extends to Strange Familia‘s latest single, “Nightlight.”
The understated track finds the duo, comprised of Garret Williams and Brecken Jones, wading in pools of atmospheric synth-pop as they parse through the darkness.
“I’ve spent the last year trying to put the pieces of my life back together,” shares Williams. “It’s hard not to feel lost when the biggest thing that’s been guiding you is taken away. That’s what ‘Nightlight’ is about. The first lyrics were inspired by my mom but those words have weighed heavier with the loss of Lila. ‘Nightlight’ is about losing the ones who inspire you, give you direction and life.”
