Light Years – The New Acoustic EP ‘Lite Years’ Is Out Today!

Cleveland OH’s very own Light Years are releasing today via Rude Records Lite Years: a new 4-track, acoustic, digital EP. It also available for streaming on Spotify, find it here.

Following the acclaimed I’ll See You When I See You release (Light Years’ latest studio effort produced by Will Yip), band felt it would have been fun to give a new, acoustic spin to some of their favourite songs from the record, at the same time working on incorporating the whole quartet with some different instruments and arrangements. Band went back to studio then – and the result is Lite Years.

Comments singer Pat Kennedy: We enjoyed reworking the songs we chose off of our last record. We stripped down “Let You Down” and made it more somber than the original version. “The Summer She Broke My Heart” was fun to do because we kept it upbeat and adding the acoustic vibe really makes it feel like a summer jam. On “Accidents” we experimented with different rhythms and using more electric guitars to vibe it out.

Also on the EP is a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s classic “Atlantic City.” Adds Pat: We recorded that song because we think it is one of the greatest songs ever written. If you haven’t listened to the original I strongly suggest you do so! The Boss just plays this with an acoustic and a harmonica and it’s brilliant, but since we aren’t that good we wanted to add a full-band sound to it.
