Review: "When The Lights Go Out" - Nina Storey

Nina Storey has given us a steamy new single with her song, "When The Lights Go Out." The spicy track is an energetic, edgy addition to the pop-rock world. Narrating a sensual story, "When The Lights Go Out" depicts a night spent with a lover from the singer's point of view. Storey weaves this tale of desire with sexy lyrics, featuring lines like "Would you like to come on over/Whiskey on the rocks we can sit and talk/Until you lay your hands all over my skin/Feel my heat come crashing in." With intimate lyrics that feel like a page ripped out of your favorite romance novel, "When The Lights Go Out" takes us on a ride full of love, lust, and erotica.

Pairing well with the erotic nature of this track, Storey's sultry vocals steal the show throughout "When The Lights Go Out." The artist flawlessly delivers the seductive lyrics with a sensuous, flirtatious tone. Accompanying Storey's impressive vocal performance, "When The Lights Go Out" creates an irresistible soundscape with raunchy, slinky guitar riffs and driving drums. The track incorporates loads of memorable melodic material that'll have you playing this song on repeat. Falling on the heavier side of pop-rock, "When The Lights Go Out" could hang in a playlist with the likes of The Pretty Reckless and P!nk. It's a must-listen for any pop-rock enthusiast looking for a punchy new anthem to be obsessed with.
