VIDEO TO WATCH: Check out Light Up the Town and their Punk goes Pop video for Stay

July 30, 2018

One of our favorite bands, Light Up The Town have released a fun nostalgic video for their Punk Goes Pop Cover of Stay by Zedd 9Ft. Alessia Cara).  It is a great nod to the 80’s vibe and it is a great cover. “After seeing so many bands who came up with covers and punk goes pop versions of songs (like our friends from Vanilla Sky did it with Umbrella, back in those days..)” They were ready to do the same. Of course trying to pick the right song can be the struggle, but they picked a great one and ran with it. “Take a good and catchy song and change it into a rock version. It had to be one, which has been in the charts for a long time, so people would recognize it. So we came across ‘Stay’.  And as some of our friends are huge fans of ‘Stranger Things’, we thought about making it this way; slightly 80’s style and lots of fairy ligts, like they use to have in the [Read More]

They were incredible and have left a lasting impression on us.  They are an indie rock band from Los Angeles that brings to life a style of free fun loving alternative rock that was straight from the ’90s but with a fresh paint of energy and style. They reminded me of my all-time favorite band of the 80s’ & 90’s The Divinyls. They have an infectious charismatic energy that radiates from each one.
