It’s the reality check that maybe every couple needs once in a while: are we still connected? Or has something come between us? It’s powerful stuff, and remember to be careful what you wish for. Knowledge and scrutiny will only set you free; the truth won’t kill you, but the freedom might.

The moment here could go either way. It’s not a song about staying, or leaving, but about having hope:

“Any spark would
be a lighthouse
up against the wind
barely flickering”— Crusoe

With a heavy use of atmospheric synth, and a deep commitment to that heavy quarter note on the bass, the slow groove moves back and forth like a palm tree swaying in the Santa Ana winds.

Living With the Lights Out is the lead single from Crusoe's new EP A Cure for Gravity, out now. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
