Light In Your Life

Light In Your LifeFormed in Uppsala, Sweden in 2005 as Sleazy Romance, the five-piece of Johann Bernövall (vocals), André Hammarstig (drums), Erik Nyberg (guitars), Ilian Afsahi (bass), and Oskar Bernövall (guitars, backing vocals) renamed themselves Light In Your Life before releasing their eponymous debut album last summer.

Despite their new moniker though, these Swedes are far from a bunch of youngsters making upbeat music to dance your shocks off; instead they play brooding, melancholic post-punk influenced indie rock that can be just as depressing as it is beautiful and dreamlike. Their pop sensibility and dark undertones put them in the same niche with Editors, Interpol, Film School, Kent, and The Cure, so if you need something gloomy for the upcoming winter nights, head over to LIYL’s Bandcamp page and download their album for free.
