Shedding light onto the meaning behind his new video, lead singer/songwriter A.L.X. explains, “”Lover, Leave the Lights On” is about a love triangle in which a woman would only be intimate with her husband with the lights off so she could pretend that it was her lover that she was sleeping with. The song was written from the husband’s perspective. For the video, we decided to go with the idea of the love triangle, but to take a more literal approach”.
The highly anticipated release of Delusions cemented Love Crushed Velvet’s place in the world of dark, melodic rock. Driven by lead singer/songwriter A.L.X., Love Crushed Velvet shows off exceptional emotional and stylistic range in lyric and musicality. Reminiscent of the glory days of rock and roll, Love Crushed Velvet has carved out a unique place in today’s music world, paying homage to the past while remaining firmly grounded in the present.
Delusions is a powerful force that touches upon the complications of love, fame and our global society. The EP begins right at the apex, with its premiere single “Revolution Time”, capturing an unyielding spirit of upheaval inspired by the personal experiences and perspective of A.L.X. The second single, “Bye Bye Baby” is about how difficult it is to process the end of a relationship.
Love Crushed Velvet maintains the unwavering strength of a revolution high throughout the entirety of Delusions. For updates please visit:lovecrushedvelvet.com
