The Lighthouse share new single ‘Cover Story’ last month in preparation for their debut album this autumn.

The Leuven-based band in Belgium has been on our radar for the past three years with their funky and vibrant indie pop. The new single ‘Cover Story’ rouses energetic beats, catchy lyrics and with a heavy layering of guitar and synths that brings about a vision of mysterious nighttime fantasies.

Their debut album ‘Whatever Comes Our Way’ will see the light of day on 27th September. Expect a varied selection of intelligent pop songs that builds on their previous work, but clearly displaying an evolution into The Lighthouse as a mature band.

More than ever, the new songs take the listener along on a trip into their universe of sultry summer evenings and wild adventures… but also of doubt and growing responsibility, whilst their youthful years slowly come to an end.

The album tells tell the story of two people falling in and out of love throughout their lives. Each track zooms in on a particular moment in the timeline of their relationship and asks the question whether or not the two are actually a good fit.

Their recipe has been proven successful with a long list of highlights. With over 200 shows that brought them as far as the infamous Sziget Festival in Budapest and to a lot of renowned local stages and festivals. In 2017 they got picked up by national broadcaster StuBru as one the country’s most promising acts and received airplay on a variety of radio stations in Belgium and The Netherlands.
