Today’s song is “Pleasure and Pain” by Lightwave Empire. The Denmark group is composed of Bjarke Parbo Riemann, Kasper Nørlund, Janus Nevel, and Anders Christiansen. They got their start together in acclaimed Dutch band Spleen United back in 2002. After ten years of playing together they were rumored to have split after their last show in 2013. This was speculated but never confirmed by the band.
Now they are back as Lightwave Empire and spent all of last year in the studio with Dave Sardy crafting a new sound.
Lightwave Empire have been compared to acts like Phoenix, Fitz and The Tantrums, and Peter Bjorn and John. Their music is described as “light, optimistic , warm, songs that inspire faith in life and love.”
This song will put you in a great mood with its happy guitars and bouncing synth rhythms. The music is complemented by the cutesy love gushing lyrics. It’s a great song to start your day.
