Avery Laird – “Light’s Low”


A newly released track “inspired by late-night train rides home,” “Light’s Low” is a success from Canadian artist Avery Laird. Mellow keys flicker with a nocturnal tint to start, as hazy smatterings of guitar kick into gear alongside percussion and lush vocals. Laird’s vocals assume a perkier, brighter quality during the satisfying chorus, complemented by a piano-laden bounce and ensuing guitar twang. “Light’s Low” impresses with its quality songwriting and tonal variety, meshing the lush late-night feel of the verses with the hooky bounciness of the chorus.

“Light’s Low” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2021’ Spotify playlist.
