Faraway Martin - Headshot by Aidan Connaughton

Irish singer-songwriter Faraway Martin has just shared his brand new single The Lights Turn On, the first single, and the title track, of his upcoming debut EP.

The Lights Turn On represents the different stages of a couple's life together, with a poignant ending from the penultimate line ‘the lights turn off’. This beautiful message is wrapped around a captivating and intimate production packed with emotive piano keys beautifully intertwined with acoustic guitar melodies. I am loving Faraway Martin's haunting vocal delivery and how much emotion pours out from his vocals, instantly making us feel each and every single word he sings. This is one of those songs that instantly gives me the chills and I think you guys will enjoy it too. The Lights Turn On is a deeply relatable piece of indie-folk music that disseminates a lifetime full of memories in under 4 minutes and reminds me a bit of a mix of Damien Rice, Coldplay and Kodaline. Have a listen to this heartfelt gem below!



Speaking about the song, Faraway Martin said,

I love playing this song live. It's the type of song that really engages the listener. When I look up after singing the last line of the song, there's often a few tears in the room. I love making that connection with the people
