LŪN Remixes Lights’ “Okay Okay”
LŪN released the remix of Lights’ Okay Okay on Nov.4.The song was originally released by Lights in September of this year. The original song is an upbeat and chirpy electronic track. Lights sings about the troubles of life being mitigated by the love and support of a significant other. It is a pleasant uplifting song that will have you bobbing your head along to it.
The remix sees the song take on a new shape. It becomes heavily dominated with synths and is way more bass driven. The drums kick in around the 1:30 minute followed by a number of beat drops. The song constantly surprises you, daring you to ask what comes next. The lyrics are less discernible from the original, with Lights’ voice turned robotic and distorted. The remix is an incredibly fun song that will no doubt make you want to get up and dance.
