Pop songstress Michaela May just released a new video for her single “Lights Out.” The video gives us a look back through a relationship that the current Michaela mourns against a multicolored lightshow background. The song is a retropop jam, drawing immediate connections to prime era Paula Abdul or Cyndi Lauper.
Here’s what Michaela had to say about the new track/video:
“Lights Out” is about a relationship that has lost it’s spark and has gone stale. Neither party is getting what they need anymore. But even though times are tough, the song is about not giving up on the relationship. I wrote this song pulling from personal experience but also because i think it’s such a common occurrence in long term relationship – you both love each other but you’ve drifted apart; so how can you get back to being ‘crazy in love?’”
