Alberta, Canada- based KOBRA AND THE LOTUS has released a new music video for their song Light Me Up. The song is the second single from their latest album Prevail I, which is the first part of a two part story, to be completed sometime in the near future.
Singer Kobra Paige gave a statement in regard to the double album’s concept. “When we are born, we are innocent, pure, and unshaped. This mandala signifies a human at the beginning of its journey. Unscathed and beautiful, the mandala is each and every one of us. As this album unfolds, you will notice it’s more than just music. Prevail I is a story of visceral truth and I believe, if we’re really being honest with ourselves, everyone will find their story within it. After all, the battles may differ, but we all started as the same mandala and we are more relatable than we’d like to admit. Our only wish is that you may enjoy the freaking crap out of this album and find comfort in realizing you’re not alone.”
When asked about the albums’ name, Paige noted “The track came after the project was titled and actually the title really set an attitude and precedent for us. It gave us this attitude of pushing forward and not giving up; our bass player, Brad, was the one who came up with the name. If we were really trying to make this very ambitious statement and with everything going on here, then we should call it prevail because that what we’re doing. I thought it was perfect and everyone is prevailing through their own story, so it just turned into that.”
Prevail I dropped on May 12th, and was well received, you can find our review of the album here
