“Don’t tread lightly / Shine so brightly / And sing your heart out all day,” sings Bristol-based singer-songwriter Chandra in his latest song “Lighters to the Sky. For all the indie rock fans, this one is just for you.
If you’re down, this song feels like something that just might cheer you up with its inspiring lyrics, upbeat guitar strumming, and Chandra’s even-singing tone that makes you feel like everything might just be okay.
“I wanted to write a positive, uplifting antidote to the blues,” said Chandra in a statement provided to the press. “This is basically a love song to all the people who have a dream but are struggling… who know deep down inside what they want to do but can’t find the support they need to follow it through” continues Chandra. “It’s also as much about people recognizing that they can help someone in spades just by being a little bit supportive. We all understand what it feels like to come together at a gig and hold our lighters or phones up to the sky… imagine if you could give someone that kind of support… how much of a lasting boost that might give someone.”
The positive vibes are definitely all there. Lift your lighters to the sky and check out the song here.
