Francis and the Lights, “Take Me to the Light”

Francis and the Lights
“Take Me to the Light” (f/ Bon Iver, Kanye West)
Take Me to the Light (out soon)

I genuinely don’t believe in guilty pleasures, but I have to admit that I’m feeling some shame for loving this new song by Francis and the Studio Wizards. Only an absolute murderers’ row of producers (Francis, Kanye, Justin Vernon, Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, BJ Burton, Caroline Shaw) could make a song with lyrics like “Tree gotta listen, tree gotta mind. It can feel the vibe. It can touch the sky” feel life affirming. But, goddamnit, they pull it off. They dial the synth warmth up to Icelandic spa levels and wash the Super Friends’ vocals in delicious filters. Maybe they’re empty calories, but they’re motherfucking delicious.
