New Video: Lights, ‘February Air’

Lights is the stage name of Toronto native Valerie Poxleitner, who dresses like a neon-clad superhero, sounds like Natalie Imbruglia (go back and listen to “Cold Air”) meets Postal Service meets Cat Power, and whose synth-backed pop tracks caught the attention of Old Navy — the retailer picked up one of her tracks for a TV campaign earlier this year), and Copeland, with whom she toured this past summer.

Her “February Lights” video is set in a futuristic space studio bedroom — fitting, since the 21-year-old says she creates much of her blushing, breathy music in her bedroom.

Watch Lights’ chilling “February Air,” and pick up her new self-titled EP before your one-uppy “first” frenemy does first.
