New headbobbing, soulful tune from Derek Vincent Smith aka house legend in the making Pretty Lights. The track is a hip-hop house jam reminiscent of his early stuff. It’s “laced with a vocal hook that is uplifting, reflective, optimistic, and hauntingly beautiful all at the same time.” The emotional music video arrives with the single, and it was created by Smith and his visual artist girlfriend Krystle Blackburn.
According to Smith, “…the creation of this track and video is also an artistic explanation as to why I chose the name ‘Pretty Lights’ for my musical project. It embodies the essence of the artistic eye and the idea that almost any moment, anywhere, can be a moment of inspiration and beauty.” While the two of them traveled together all over the world during 2011, they filmed as much as their schedule allowed. Locations included in the video include Detroit, Warsaw, NYC, Vancouver, Toronto, London, Paris, Prague, Australia, New Zealand, Denver and many more.
