about

A Northern Light Belfast, UK

Ever since their formation at the turn of the decade, A Northern Light have strived to push the sonic boundaries of the three-piece alt-rock band.

The band have gradually shaped this sound over the course of several well-received EPs & singles, the incorporation of modern technology into their live performances, and a strong DIY ethos that sets them apart from other unsigned artists.

Track Name: The Right Thing To Do
You took a picture, I saw the future
I wanna go right now, come on

For you
For you
For you
‘Cause it's just the right thing to do
For you
It's just the right thing to do

If you’re breathless and you’re broken
Let us come inside again and we
Will fill your lungs - let us try, son
Cause it's the closest thing we have to healing

For you It's just the right thing to do
Yeah it's a reason

But first
Throw your stones away
Track Name: Thanatosis
Will you still come around, when you don't need anybody
Will we play dead, will we play dead?

I've yet to pass a brighter one
The night sky mourns your absence
But I speak eye to eye
The lengths you go to sufficate
Any fragment of scrutiny
What you hiding there, boy?

Will you still come around, when you don't need anybody
Will we play dead, will we play dead?

Oh my God, these memories aren't just mine
I scream alone
We all fuck up a million times
It's time to dust off your mirror now
And climb on down

Will you still come around, when you don't need anybody
Will we play dead, will we play dead?
'Cause this can turn around, the moment you want it to
Will we play dead, will we play dead?
Track Name: Seen
The ghost spoke only for others
Her voice unheard as the sea of souls crashed over her
Turbulent yet dry
Draining her sight, her mind
Sucking at her ability to be kind
Falling deeper into the hedonistic, empty, dark unknown
Powdered, sweet, sickly white with heavenly drone

But her fingertips started to fuzz
Her body flowered
Spring seeped into her soul

She met his eyes

Line to line
Drink to drink
Body to body

But her fingertips started to fuzz
Her body flowered
spring seeped into her soul
But her fingertips started to fuzz
Her body flowered
Spring seeped into her soul
She met his eyes

Barriers dropped and her heart filled
The monster hunting her has the chance to be killed
The ghost became a woman
Fully formed and beautiful
Strength and beauty
Words, faces, skin, all is new
She smiles for the first time
Her lips are wet

She is seen
Track Name: Entrada Mi Guapa
I turn the glass around
Look at you upside down
You’re just as pretty here
But on your face, a sneer
You can’t be trusted now
You left the lower brow
It won’t be long until
Bird on the window sill

When the lid is left ajar
Don’t have to travel far
Another ladybird
At war with the world

You shouldn’t have to fall asleep
For your problems to disappear
Come and have a drink, my dear
In here

‘Cause all I see are broken rooms
And a corridor that leads from here
I know not where it leads, my dear
Don’t fear

Yes you gotta go find me
I'll chase the ghosts away
