One of our favorite local indie-pop bands, Night Lights, has added another stellar song to their dreamy discography. Their latest release, “Felicity,” weaves their dreamy guitars and bouncy synths together in typical feel-good fashion for this globally influenced quartet. Lyrically, the song is an embodiment and exploration of happiness.
According to lead singer Mauricio Jimenez, “Felicity” is a song “about a girl who is a personification of the word ‘felicidad,’ which means happiness in Spanish.”
He goes on to explain that the song explores every facet of happiness, “…how hard happiness is to obtain, and how easy it is to get lost in all the suffering in the world.” In today’s rocky political climate, a song examining the dimensions and importance of happiness couldn’t be more appropriate. “The song is an anthem to remind those of us in Night Lights, and hopefully anyone who listens, that happiness is a choice, and that it can be shared,” says Jimenez.
I caught one of Night Lights’ performances this past summer at Eat|See|Hear and have been hooked ever since! If you’re looking for your next fix of local indie pop, the band will be performing February 15th at The Resident and tickets are available now.
