Bombardier Jones, a known name in DC’s underground indie-rock scene, recently released their latest studio album Dare to Hope. Frontrunner Ian Jones perfectly meshes his love for British psych-rock and the alt-rock sounds of the 90s to create his own unique style of rock and roll. Jones has been producing and playing music since the ‘90s, and no song better displays his songwriting abilities than “Let the Light Shine” off of his new album.
Listen in here:
Backed by a grandiose instrumental backtrack, “Let the Light Shine” builds energy alongside rich sounds of a full bodied brass section and upbeat piano riffs. The chorus sweeps through the listener with its catchy, uplifting call of “let the light shine over you and out of you.” The track, though sonically influenced by the likes of The Kinks and The Yardbirds, sweeps the listener into country music territory as the bridge combines retro guitar with twangy horns.
