about

Lights Fade Low's first EP brings an epic cinematic feel to modern down-tempo and trip-hop.

Lights Fade Low mixes haunting melodies with modern beats, a rich sonic palette, and lush vocals, to create a unique and compelling sound.

Hailing from Seattle, WA, Lights Fade Low is the work of singer-songwriter-producer Darren Apfel, who studied music theory and technology at Yale University’s Center for Studies in Music Technology.

Lights Fade Low’s debut EP captures the essence of lust, loss, and longing and features Apfel trading verses with the incredible Seattle vocalist Aradia Correnti in rich and evocative exchanges.

The CD opens with Cold, a sexy lounge song in which Aradia asks “Can you feel me / Can you smell me / Can you taste me / When you’re all alone?” It’s followed by a disturbing, yet triumphant trip-hop powerhouse, Touch that’s rich with cinematic sound and assures the listener “No one will hurt you / The way that I hurt you.” In Looking, a brooding down-tempo piece, Apfel asks Correnti “What is wrong with me / That I keep coming back / To this place I can’t exist / This time that’s clearly past?” The tone of the album turns to dangerous love in its second duet, Want, where Apfel warns Correnti “I say what I shouldn’t say / I look where I shouldn’t look / I touch what I shouldn’t touch.” But love fades, and Aradia’s beautiful voice is solo again in Say, as she states, simply, “I haven’t changed / but you feel strange / what else can I say?”

Track Name: Cold
When you’re alone out there, my friend
Do you think of me and where this all might end?

Late at night, when you’re drifting off to sleep
Do you reach out a hand expecting to find me?

On summer days, in the early evening breeze
Do you feel my breath against your neck begging you please?

When someone brushes by you in the busy street
Do you feel my skin against yours, do you feel my heat?

When you eat alone, with every single bite
Do you miss the way I taste when we laid down at night?

Can you feel me
Can you smell me
Can you taste me
When you’re all alone?

Ooh ooh ooh, what am I to do?
Hey hey hey, what am I to say?

In the wintertime, as the rain runs down your face
Just like the sweat dripped down my back when we’d embrace

Just one more lonely night, another story told
When I’m in bed alone the sheets feel far too cold

Ooh ooh ooh, what am I to do?
Hey hey hey, what am I to say?
Ooh ooh ooh, I’m so deep into you…
But Hey hey hey, don’t make me feel that way!
Track Name: Touch
No one will touch you
No one will touch you
I’d rip their heads off if they tried

No one will take you
No one will break you
I’ll keep you whole until I die

I can feel you inside/ underneath my skin
Feel you take me from within
I can feel you breathing / take away my wind
Feel my outsides turning in

No one will push you
No one will push you
I’ll push back hard with all my might

No one will turn you
No one will burn you
I’ll stand before you in the light

No one will stain you
No one will pain you
I’ll keep you clean until my end

No one will hurt you
The way that I hurt you
Nothing will feel the same again

I can feel you inside / underneath my skin
Feel you take me from within
And so I surrender / bound to you in sin
Feel my outsides turning in

And the dawn is breaking / over my blue mind
But I don’t know what you’ll find
And the poison’s taking / hold of me this time
And the feeling’s so sublime
Track Name: Looking
What is wrong with me
That I keep coming back
To this place I can’t exist
This time that’s clearly past?

What have you done to me
That you know me so well?
But this person you’ve become
I can barely tell.

And I will always be looking for you
But I will never find you.
And I will always be looking for you
But I will never find you.

What is wrong with you
That you refuse to see
That you can’t let me go
But can’t be there for me?

What have you done to me
That ties me up inside?
As strong as I try to be
I’m still lost in your eyes.

And I will always be looking for you
But I will never find you.
And I will always be looking for you
But I will never find you.
Track Name: Want
I want what I shouldn’t want
I feel what I shouldn’t feel
I need what I shouldn’t need

If you want to get close to me
If you want to live in my skin
If you are ready to bleed

I say what I shouldn’t say
I look where I shouldn’t look
I touch what I shouldn’t touch

If you lose your control
If you turn inside out
If this is all too much

You get close to me
Right where you need to be
Pull me in and push me down

Feel me inside of you
Do what you need me to
Hold my breath don’t make a sound

I push when I shouldn’t push
I breathe what I shouldn’t breathe
I taste what I shouldn’t taste

If you get wet with me
If you want to sink down with me
If you want to move time and space

Feel me inside of you
Do what you need me to
Hold my breath don’t make a sound
Track Name: Say
I can barely breathe
I find it hard to see
Can't keep up
Can't slow down
Can't be sure it's me

You're so far away
It's harder every day
I haven't changed
But you feel strange
What else can i say?
