ATTIC LIGHTS were one of the biggest hits of 2008. Their singles, their videos, their songs grew from their native Glasgow and spread all over the world, until major labels were fighting to release the group’s first album, “Friday Night Lights.” It was finally released at the end of 2008 on Island Records, the company that has released albums by artists like THE B-52’S, John Cale, Nick Drake, THE ISLEY BROTHERS, and Ringo Starr, among many others. ATTIC LIGHTS received critical and popular acclaim, and toured all over the world. This past 2012 they signed with Elefant Records to release what will be their second album, “Super De Luxe,” but for now we’ve got this incredible advance single with four fantastic songs that make the power of their crystal clear guitars, especially when combined with their marvelous vocal harmonies and the solid choruses.

“Say You Love Me” is a perfect example of this. Forceful, epic guitars, full of pop spirit and the embodiment of distortion, euphoric, lifted by the excellent vocal melodies and a tremendous chorus – one of those songs that you find yourself humming a few minutes after hearing it for the first time – it’s a perfect mix of THE BOO RADLEYS and THE BEACH BOYS. “Summer’s Coming Back” is the exception that proves the rule: crystalline guitars for a delicate melody that’s as exciting as it is elegant, with those choruses in 4-part harmony that have been compared so many times to TEENAGE FANCLUB. In fact, Francis MacDonald has produced the group’s new songs again.

“Breathe For Me” (which will also be on “Super De Luxe”, along with the title track) is pure intensity with huge arrangements, euphoria stamped with their personality, and yet another chorus that shines again and again throughout the song, something between the incombustible energy of BIG STAR and WEEZER and the brightness of THE CYRKLE and HARPERS BIZARRE. Last but not least, “Barcelona”, a story of memories that the city of Barcelona brings up, definitely raises the bar for what we expect of a pop song. And this is just the appetizer. The main dish is about to arrive. And we’re all so, so hungry.

Track Name: Say You Love Me
Your likes are all defined by all the things you hate
All you can talk about
Is what they are wrong about and all of their mistakes

I could try, if you wanted me to
Try to think like you
Like you do

Hey, hey, hey, hey, baby I hang on to every word you toss my
Way, hey, hey, hey
Day after day, I just can’t break away
It’s complicated, suffocated, close to hate, too much to take
I only want to hear you say you love me

Bite your lip and keep it bottled up inside
‘Cause when you open your mouth
I find it hard to tell the Jekyll from the Hyde

I could try, if you wanted me to
Try to think like you
Like you do

Hey, hey, hey, hey, baby I hang on to every word you toss my
Way, hey, hey, hey
Day after day, I just can’t break away
It’s complicated, suffocated, close to hate, too much to take
I only want to hear you say you love me

Hey baby, don’t you wanna say goodbye
You’re crazy, if you thought of you and I

Hey, hey, hey, hey, baby I hang on to every word you toss my
Way, hey, hey, hey
Day after day, I just can’t break away
It’s complicated, suffocated, close to hate, too much to take
I only want to hear you say you love me
Track Name: Summer's Coming Back
Waking up to a most familiar feeling
Got a feeling that my feelings will feel the same
Thought that by now I would be healing
But I struggle even just to say your name
 
The snow and hail were dear to me
Clouds part from my memory
And I shiver when the leaves grow on the trees
 
Now the summer’s coming back to me
Kicking screaming and I just can’t shake that feeling oh oh oh oh
And the summer’s coming back to me
 
Through my curtains everybody’s smiling
On the park, on the beach, on the lawn, on the streets and in the sea
Never ending days won’t stop me hiding
When the leaves are crisp in the mist that’s where I want to be
 
Now the summer’s coming back to me
Kicking screaming and I just can’t shake that feeling oh oh oh oh
And the summer’s coming back to me
Kicking screaming and I just can’t shake that feeling oh oh oh oh
And the summer’s coming
Track Name: Breathe For Me
Roll down the window on the passenger side
And let the air come through
Looking at you I forget how to drive
But this is the perfect view
This is a bad place for us to break down
But you had the good sense to
Make it the opposite of hanging around
By all the good things that you do

When you go, go
I look at you and you light up and say

When you lose control
From the walls to wall
If you need it more
Just breathe for me

Remember you dress me up
You explain the science of picking a lane
But of course I couldn’t change
How the wind breaks us so clear

No you go, go
Into somewhere that I can’t explain

When you lose control
From the walls to wall
If you need it more
Just breathe for me

When the colour goes
Better close our eyes
And if you need it more
Then breathe for me

And I would fall on hands and knees
And I would pray and beg and plead
That the wave beneath me swells
With everything you need

Then you go, go
Now I dream that you light up my way

When you lose control
From the walls to wall
If you need it more
Just breathe for me

When the colour goes
Better close our eyes
And if you need it more
Then breathe for me
Track Name: Barcelona
Six AM, this orange haze, bleary in the morning light
No-one uses paper these days, but all I seem to do is write
On a night that could swallow you whole
On a street that reminds you of home
In a language you don’t understand
Making sense where I normally can’t

I lost that tuesday
I didn’t go home
I missed the last flight
From Barcelona

A warning sign, begins to flash, saying quit now while you’re ahead
But even then, I just can’t stop, repeating the same thoughts instead
'Cause you want all the things you can see
Close your eyes now and let yourself be
As the moon is reflecting the sun
And your face can be found in someone

I lost that tuesday
I didn’t go home
I missed the last flight
From Barcelona
