Tunes & Tales: Electric Light

May 8, 2020

If you’ve been a long-time blog reader or you simply follow me on Instagram, then you likely already know that I am a huuuuuuuge James Bay fan. I was so excited for the release of his sophomore album Electric Light! It’s definitely a departure from his debut in terms of sound, as there’s heavier instrumental production and synths used on a number of tracks. But even with the new chapter in sound, there is still a callback to his musical roots. Most tracks still feature his signature acoustic guitar playing paired with his raw vocal and honest lyrics, and it all comes together to be a fully incredible album. While I prefer his debut just a smidge more than this one, I still highly recommend giving this one a listen! I have it on repeat a lot when the day calls for it, and it’s one of my go-to listens when I’m doing work (because it’s oddly motivational for me).

I had a few immediate favorites upon my first listen, but I also had a few tracks grow on me as the album went into my rotation. Here are my five favorite tracks!


Song: Wild Love
Lyrics: “Don’t know what to say to you now / Standing right in front of you / Don’t know how to fade in and out / Don’t know how to play it cool / Lose a little guard, let it down / We don’t have to think it through / We’ve got to let go / I wanna give you wild love / The kind that never slows down / I wanna take you high up / Let our hearts be the only sound / I wanna go where the lights burn low and you’re only mine / I wanna give you wild love”
Alexa’s Thoughts: I truly cannot tell you how many times I listened to this track, both when it was released as the initial single and when I started listening to the full album. It’s the perfect blend of a new sound with signature lyrics, and I am still incredibly obsessed with this track. (Also, I could have copy pasted this ENTIRE song’s lyrics for the section prior to this one. Because it just fits this story so well.)

Song: Just for Tonight
Lyrics: “Make me believe that you need me most / Be the real thing, don’t be just a ghost / I try to call but I can’t get hold / Call me right back, call me right back / You told me, no matter, everywhere we go / I was your rock, was it just a joke? / If I come a’lookin’, would you even know? / Call me right back, call me right back”
Alexa’s Thoughts: I’ve always loved the way this track sounds, because it’s particularly reminiscent of Chaos and the Calm. The juxtaposition between the cheerful-sounding music and the pleading in the lyrics has always been a great hook as well. This is also the track that I can never stop myself from singing along with when it plays!

Song: In My Head
Book: The Play
Lyrics: “Now that you exist, I’m in your atmosphere / I’m going out of my mind / I’m gonna get you in my head whether I like it or not / I’m gonna get you in my head ‘til I can’t forget / I’m gonna get you in my head, in my head, in my head / I’m gonna get you in my head ‘til I can’t forget”
Alexa’s Thoughts: This track is so dang catchy! I’m always humming along to it whenever it comes on, simply because it’s impossible for that earworm to leave me alone. I also really like how cheeky it comes across!


Song: Wanderlust
Lyrics: “I just need to see you, need to feel that rush / Again and again and again / Come on over and mend my heart / I didn’t want to be here / I didn’t want to be here without you / Want to be here / But every one of us, every one of us got wanderlust”
Alexa’s Thoughts: When I saw the tracklist for the album prior to actually listening, this was the title that immediately stood out. Honestly, anything that evokes the idea of travel? I’m here for it. I was actually surprised by the sound of this track initially, but it grew on me with every listen.

Song: I Found You
Book: Jet
Lyrics: “When I found you / I needed you more than I’ll ever know / Slippin’ deeper, deeper / I can’t believe I get to know you / No, I can’t believe I get to show you / I had no one ‘til I found you, oh / ‘Til I really found you”
Alexa’s Thoughts: I just loved this song right from the first listen. First of all, the music is so good and is the type of thing I could listen to forever. Pairing that with lyrics that hit you in the feels? It’s a winning combination. I still can’t stop smiling whenever I hear that intro and when it crescendoes spectacularly.

Salah satu pasaran terbesar saat ini tengah menjadi buah bibir diantara para bettor indonesia. Selain itu website asiktogelku juga menyediakan Pengeluaran HK paling sah.
