CD Review: These Electric Lives “We See Light”

Toronto-based These Electric Lives kick off their latest EP, We See Light, with “Hit the Ground Running” – a punchy, synth-oriented track reminiscent of blinking lights and a crowded dance floor. “Called it Off” follows with a mellower vibe, far more laid back but still holding the foot-shuffling energy one may come to expect of These Electric Lives; the chorus swells majestically and the vocals  provide a lovely counter melody.

“Work the Night” begins with a grungier guitar and a darker tone, sounding more alternative in nature than the whimsical previous tracks. This song feels more like work than the other two and gives off a tension that was not present before, giving These Electric Lives an interesting depth.
