Adrienne Nye Reveals: I Need The Light

The singer-songwriter is left out in the romantic cold on her latest single.

Adrienne Nye illuminates the darkest of winter days with her new single I Need The Light — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The lead single from her upcoming EP, These Winter Skies, I Need The Light grabs the listener’s attention with quietly crescendoing drum synth pads that lay out a catchy rhythm with syncopated snaps and staccato keys. Adrienne’s steady vocals about self-love and acceptance drive through the percussive backdrop, previewing the beauty of These Winter Skies.

“One little snowflake on my tongue
There for a second, then gone
And underneath these winter skies
Stripped naked, there’s nowhere to hide
I’ll pull the stars down from the night
‘Cause I need the light.”

“The song is actually about a relationship I found myself in at the time that really wasn’t working,” Nye explains. “In a lot of ways, this relationship had me feeling ‘left out in the cold’ figuratively. Love is often so temporary. Like a snowflake that melts on your tongue, every person you fall for is unique, one of a kind, and often gone in the blink of an eye, leaving you feeling raw and grieving in some ways,” she added.

Produced by Cody Taylor at Fiend Recordings, I Need The Light represents the positivity one can gain from internal reflection. When she finds herself in a pickle or with an issue, she looks to nature for guidance. “I often look to the sky when I need to connect to something bigger than my ego. It humbles me and brings me back down to earth with a little more perspective.”

The album spans the theme of nature, as well. Adrienne said nature helps her make sense of the strangeness that is this thing called life. “Nature brings me back to simplicity. To simple truths about the world.” According to the multi-faceted singer, These Winter Skies is a “hopeful and uplifting” foray into the human condition — an exploration of what it means to fully exist, how to navigate life, love, pain, and ultimately, accept yourself.
