Siberia

When Canadian electro-rock sensation Lights first hit the music scene in 2008, she was just a songwriter with a synth and a dream. Her name may have been pluralized but Lights Poxleitner was a one-woman show who played and programmed her own instruments and sang her own lyrics. This admirable self-reliance is rare in pop—in fact, Lights, signed a publishing deal at 16 and began writing songs for other artists. In 2008 her self-titled debut EP was precocious enough to earn her a ‘Best New Artist’ Juno and in September 2009 Lights released her debut full-length follow-up ’The Listening’ which has since received Gold certification in Canada. The dividend from her early award-winning success is her current artistic freedom. Not to mention her sprawling online footprint which includes over a half-million Facebook fans and over a quarter-million Twitter followers. Fast forward to 2011 and Lights is back with the release of her sophomore full-length album ‘Siberia’ (Last Gang Records / Lights Music) to be released in Australia October 28th via Shock Records. Siberia was co-produced by Lights and her trusted collaborator, Thomas 'Tawgs' Salter. Special guest producers include Graham Walsh & Brian Borcherdt from acclaimed Canadian indie-electro outfit, Holy Fuck. The fellow Juno-winning duo initially met a when they both played the dance stage at last year’s Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK. Impressed by their 'grime and grit,' she decided to see what might happen when she infused her pop sensibilities with their experimental tendencies. Their artistic synergies clicked and eventually they completed nine tracks (including 'Everybody Breaks A Glass' and 'Toes'), peppering Siberia with Holy Fuck’s edgy organic grit and merging them with LIGHTS’ trademark synth-pop sounds.
