Lakelands - I’ll Be The Fire

Lakelands - I’ll Be The Fire

This post was originally published in December 2018.

I’ll Be The Fire, the latest from Lakelands, is a blend of punchy electro-pop, a big vocal mix, and a chopped-up drum groove, put together over an allegretto. It’s that ebullient, Imagine Dragons style of pop lyricism.

Beyond the moderated high-energy and the aggressive spotlighting, the song stands as a symbolic gesture, and a source of solidarity; as a promise to do whatever it takes.

“I know I go against the grain
I’m in the middle of the desert
dancing for rain”— Lakelands

Fire, catalyst, passion, responsibility; we don’t care what you call it.

Lakelands is a native Pacific Northwestern indie pop outfit drawing influences from pop punk to gospel. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
