about

Each track has been specially recorded, mixed and remixed in Seattle and mastered in the UK for this release.

Lights Fade Low mixes haunting melodies with modern beats, a rich sonic palette, and lush vocals, to create a unique and compelling sound. Lights Fade Low's music has been featured in film and TV.

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 second EP refines and expands on Lights Fade Low's sound with gritty distorted, driving, passionate aggressive tracks mixed with quiet, thoughtful pieces.

The EP once again features Apfel trading verses with the incredible Seattle vocalist Aradia Correnti in powerful, evocative exchanges, and also includes the soulful vocals of new artist Gina Seal.

Track Name: Hurricane
You know you want to break me
You want to take me
Forsake me
In your hurricane

I know you want to ride me
To divide me
Inside me
In my hurricane

Take me
Ride me
Forsake me
Inside me

You know you want to twist me
But you can’t resist me
You kissed me
In your hurricane

I know you want to hurt me
To pervert me
Desert me
In my hurricane

You want me bad
Want what you have
Caught in the breeze
Swept up in me

I know you want to fix me
And that conflicts me
Tricks me
In my hurricane

You know that you complete me
But you cheat me
Beat me
In your hurricane

I know you want to hate me
But you date me
And bait me
In your hurricane

I’ll be just what you want
I’ll be your everything
If it were up to me
I’d be the only thing you need

You want me bad
Want what you have
Caught in the breeze
Swept up in me

Break me, take me, forsake me
Ride me, divide me, inside me
Twist me, resist me, kiss me
Hurt me, pervert me, desert me
Track Name: Control
I thought I knew you
better than all the rest, the lot of them were
deep as rain drops
on my windshield
cold as steel in
dead of winter

I thought I was
better than this, but in time I learned my weakness
wound like wire
coiled too tight
hot like embers
burn too bright

I can’t control you
And you can’t control me
And we’re not the ones that we want us to be

You push too hard
everywhere you are they feel your presence
strong like waves
against the sea wall
loud as thunder
over me

You don’t let on
I never really know where I stand
thick like fog
rolled off the bay
black like night
at the new moon

I can’t control you
And you can’t control me
And we’re not the ones that we want us to be

I know you want me
I know you need me
I know you can't Control me but we
Feel so right
Together aren’t we?

I can’t own you
And you can’t own me
And we’re not the ones that we want us to be

I know you want me
I know you need me
I know you can't own me but we
Feel so right
Together aren’t we?

Over me, you’re meant for me
I can’t breathe, just the thought destroys me

I can’t fix you
And you can’t fix me
And we’re not the ones that we want us to be

I know you want me
I know you need me
I know you can't fix me but we
Feel so right
Together aren’t we?
Track Name: Small
When I was small
We walked down to the lake
And rowed until we couldn’t see

And when we reached the shore
We pulled the boat to the trees
And ventured out so quietly

The sun shone down
On empty homes
Arranged around a willow tree

Their window panes
Were splintered in
Their floors were covered in debris

When things are alright
That’s when I get afraid
Forever fight or flight
That’s the bed I’ve made

When I was a girl
I’d hide out in the woods
That stretched out behind my home

Deep in the trees
I found a secret place
Cleared around a sitting stone

I’d climb so high
On ancient pines
I’d reach the top and look around

And then one day
The trucks all came
And tore the trees out of the ground

When things are alright
That’s when I get afraid
Forever fight or flight
That’s the bed I’ve made
Track Name: Blood
While I lie awake at night
My failures run through my head
And while I’m right next to you
I need you inside me instead

Why can’t we cut through the shells where we hide
Why do we feel so alone
Why can’t we pry ourselves open inside
Right through to blood and to bone

While I lie asleep at night
A fire burns inside my brain
My blood boils inside my skin
My heart hammers right through my frame

Outside the night is hot
Sirens, dogs bark, a drunk man screams
The world must be splitting apart
And tearing its way through my dreams

Why can’t you push so deep into my soul
Tear through inside till we’re one
Fill up the emptiness and make me whole
Show me how deep can you come

Why can’t we cut through the shells where we hide
Why do we feel so alone
Why can’t we pry ourselves open inside
Right through to blood and to bone
Track Name: Please
Please get me out of here
Please take me away
Please get me out of here
Don’t leave me this way

Please get me out of here
I’m dying inside
Please get me out of here
Don’t leave me to die

(Backwards)
The more I try
The bigger the wall
The more I want
The harder I fall

(Frontwards again)
Please get me out of here
Please cover my eyes
Please get me out of here
And take me inside…of you

The only place I feel anything
It’s all I know to do
The only place I mean anything
Is deep inside of you

Please get me out of here
I’m all out of time
Please get me out of here
Please say that your mine

Please get me out of here
Please cover my ears
Please get me out of here
Erase all my fears of you

The only place I feel anything
It’s all I know to do
The only place I mean anything
Is deep inside of you
Track Name: Sleep
I lie awake waiting for you to return
I’m fading fast into the night

I slip away into that hazy undertow
I think I’ve lost my will to fight

I have to admit we crossed that line hours ago
I guess we should have seen the signs

Broken and torn, for you the trepidation grows
Forever wondering who you’ll find

Everything’s quiet under that foggy weight of sleep
Deconstructing in my dreams

I feel your heat. Subconsciously I know you’re here
It’s never quite the way it seems
