The new EP by Detroit-area trio Lightning Love pairs darkness and light, creating beauty in the process. "Deadbeat," the three-minute ditty that opens the release, bubbles with hints of Death Cab for Cutie and a bluesy, syncopated stomp that portends an epic storm. Heavy strikes of drums and piano keys kindle "I Know," which trudges forward with both weariness and confidence as singer Leah Diehl spins a tale about emotional disconnects. A lost soul's hopes and sorrows spring from the simple piano melody of "Wake Up and Find Myself," wending their way toward pop as pure and lovely as a Pernice Brothers tune.
