Exclusively available on Bandcamp until now, Lightning Bug’s cover of the Kinks’ “Waterloo Sunset” is now available wherever you get your streams.
Of the track, Lightning Bug’s Audrey Kang says, “‘Waterloo Sunset’ helped me through a period of intense loneliness a few years ago. I was estranged from my family and I was coming out of a very significant relationship. For years, I had been so wrapped up in that one person that I found myself with no close friends and a frail sense of who I was. I had forgotten how to be alone! That holiday season, I had nowhere to go, so I took a trip to Finland. I figured I’d at least embrace the wintry spirit, and I brought my guitar to maybe write some songs. But instead, I played Waterloo Sunset. I could feel the melody and lyrics waking me back up to the beauty in the world around me. Truly that was all the company I needed.”
