Irish rocker and modern prophet Pat Dam Smyth looked to the past for inspiration on his latest song, “Blue Lights.” About the song, Smyth explains in detail:
“It is a memory piece that recalls Pat and his teenage band’s first headline show back in Northern Ireland, when a bomb scare saw the venue evacuated. Instruments bought especially for the occasion were abandoned as the band tore from the scene in a tiny Ford Fiesta, watching the blue lights fly past in the other direction as their teenage getaway driver got high.”
Smyth’s dead-on description truly paints a vivid picture…. Fans of Father John Misty, The National, or The War On Drugs will find solace in Pat Dam Smyth’s warm baritone and keyboard-laced indie rock.
