LIGHT UP IN THE NAME OF LOVE






Happy holidaze from the Prabir Trio!

As the world begins to light up the holiday season we figured we would to! Here’s our sorta-holiday song for the occasion, Light Up In The Name Of Love. We’re also stoked to be doing this to get more folks hip to Norml and their efforts to move public opinion sufficiently to legalize the responsible use of cannabis by adults and to prevent needless life-altering criminal charges for many. If that’s not doing something in the name of love, then what is? We hope everyone’s safe and enjoying the winter thus far. Give the tune a spin and remember that when you light up, light up in the name of love!

More on the song:

Light Up In The Name Of Love will appear on the next Prabir Trio album, Haanji. Prabir Trio’s output is usually quick blasts of high octane catchy short songs. For this one I wanted to dig deeper. The song itself is about the celebration of my love for this band and our little rituals. The moments spent with these folks getting silly and loose before a gig, in the studio, or at the practice space has forged a deep and loving friendship. There’s no room or time in Prabir Trio for hate. As I was working on this song I wanted to make it a very joyous groovy song with sprinkles of chaotic instrumental parts lead by a very very loose and rowdy electric guitar. Another aspect that was kept in mind for this song was the length. I wanted this one to be a longer song because, well, honestly everything feels much longer when you light up. Having three guitar solos in one song is overkill for anyone, but for some reason this song felt just right for very long rambling guitar lines as the drums and bass hold a deep groove the whole time. Adding harmonies to the choruses and the call and response parts just brings in all the fun voices while giving it that subtle layer of everyone lighting up in the name of love. Why else do it, right? The final touches included adding a little electric sitar into the mix. You can take the boy out of India, but you can’t take India out of the boy they say. When it’s all said and done this song clocks in at nearly seven minutes and is filled with percussion, guitar, drums, bass, harmonies, finger snaps, you name it.

This is a really fun song, probably my favorite one to play live. Hopefully we can get back to that once the world is a bit safer, but till then we can share videos with you.
