LightBody Sound are a husband-and-wife duo – two gypsies who crossed paths in Texas, in a now-nonexistent brothel called The Last Concert Café. Elizabeth and Chris have each tried their hand at various solo gigs before linking up. Last year, they have unleashed this as their first project together, and have since released their latest single, “What About Love.”
Soon after the single began, I was taken aback by its distinctive ‘hit song’ mentality, characterized by equally cheeky vocal and synth tones. The bass line, aside from maintaining its rhythmic foundation, seems to exhibit its individual charisma in the same way, sporting both stationary and exclamatory forms. From a thematic standpoint, the song centers on a nostalgia-driven path toward love – the previous twists, turns, faults and lows, and the eventual, genuine unity between two people that eventually follows – complete with a tinge of humor. It’s a complex concept with definite potential for full-length expansion, and I look forward to how it further unfolds with future releases.
