My first impression of “Shine A Light” : A radio-friendly type of song with an enticing build that can energize a stagnant room

My take : Some musicians have that special something and UK singer/songwriter BANNERS is one of them.  No doubt about it.  And his latest track “Shine A Light” is all sorts of brilliant.  Building off the buzz from his stellar “Ghosts” release from about seven months ago, “Shine A Light” takes it all to another level. It’s the type of standout song in a live set everyone in the room recognizes and instantly gets excited about.  As the energy builds from a hum to full on shout, everyone’s attention eagerly follows.  Through a room filling blend of heart-pounding drums, determined vocals and mood-changing tempo changes, BANNERS pulls the listener through a tough yet uplifting journey filled with conflicting emotions that is altogether empowering.  And even though I don’t usually go for songs featured on video games (FIFA 16 in this case),  “Shine A Light” is just too good to pass over!

TMH RATING: 8.7/10 Amazing!

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
