about

On the heels of their latest full length album, “The Sea Within”, released last year, The Belle Sounds are back with a new single, 'Light It Up.'

Lead singer/songwriter Noëlle Hampton once again showcases her ability to write a hook that gets stuck in your head for days, and with the help of producer Danny Reisch, this track has a fresh, modern feel. Their new single “Light it Up” is bright, anthemic and utterly addictive. "Light it Up" was created after a prompt in a songwriting group threw Noëlle for a loop.“I joined a group with biweekly prompts. When I saw that one of them was ‘Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily’ (from the nursery rhyme) I found myself feeling really pissed off.” she explains, “Then I had to ask myself why those words made me feel angry. These are some dark times we are living in and it can’t be ignored. I am reminded everyday of how hard it is and fight back deep feelings of sadness, even on days that show us some light. I took the prompt and turned it into a personal anthem to get myself through it all.”

lyrics

Light It Up ©Noëlle Hampton/ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing

I used to find happiness in all the little things
And it would carry me for quite a while
These days the rain feels heavy on my head
And every song just makes me want to change the dial

And I want to get back to the good stuff (the good stuff)
I want to get back to the good stuff (the good stuff)

I think we all know what it was that killed the sun
that used to shine so big and bright upon our lives
I’m trying hard to look beyond and see the light that is to come
And take a moment to realize

That we need to get back to the good stuff (the good stuff)
We need to get back to the good stuff (the good stuff)

So light it up, make your way
Do whatever you need to do
To bring the joy back in your day
Light it up!

Go meet a friend you haven’t seen in quite a while
And laugh your ass off like a giddy little child
Or swim naked underneath a half lit moon
Just to remember what it feels like to be wild

So we can get back to the good stuff (the good stuff)
We need to get get back to the good stuff (the good stuff)

So light it up, make your way
Do whatever you need to do
To make the dark cloud go away
So light it up, find your way
Do whatever you need to do
To bring the joy back in your day
Light it up!

Light it up! Go find your joy.
Light it up! Go find your joy.

So light it up, make your way
Do whatever you need to do
To make the dark cloud go away
So light it up, find your way
Do whatever you need to do
To bring the joy back in your day
Light it up!
