This one is all about those life-saving moments when someone says EXACTLY what you need to hear. For anyone who suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder. Enough said.


The last days of Summer make me feel so obsolete
But you have the answer that's why I still compete


Whatever you said. It worked. It worked
Whatever you meant. It worked. It worked
Whatever you said. It worked. It worked

And if there's a problem, if there's something in the way
No one is faster to drive all the doubts away



And if I take a fall, then you will pick me up
And if life does its thing, then it won't trip me up
And I hope you'll remain forever in love, in love, in love

Lightning Dept. Brighton, UK

Lightning Dept. was all started by the misreading of a shop sign. Written over a 3 week period and recorded in just 3 days, 'things KEEP blowing UP' is a fresh, icy blast of pop magic. The bands love of Weezer, Lemonheads and Guided By Voices shines through on this 15 track album which is all over in 32 minutes of clipped majestic indie rock.
Look out for the CD and digital release in March 2012.
