Rowe, Sean, The Darkness Dressed in Colored Lights

The Darkness Dressed in Colored Lights is ripe with both dimensions. It was produced by Rowe’s friend and longtime collaborator Troy Pohl and here they make the most of their combined ambition and experience. The album’s title is taken from its first single, “To Make It Real.” “All this darkness, dressed in colored lights. Everything is wrong but you look so damn beautiful tonight.” It’s a relatable couplet that illustrates the paradox between what once was and what now is, while the chorus howls in response to being lost in the inbetween. “When you lose your way, when you lose your face, when you’re paid tenfold for what you used to steal. When you lose that love, when you lose your mind, well then oh my God, you make it real.”
