When you’re a new artist, there’s a lot of aspects that may change while you’re attempting to gain buzz. Your name may change, your style may change, even your look may change. All of this is fine, so long as it doesn’t drastically alter your sound. Back in March we were introduced to RAINES, and his haunting debut “Ghosts.” Now a few months later, RAINES is going by BANNERS, but that sound he first cultivated is (luckily) still the same. “Shine A Light” is his follow-up, a triumphant and cinematic piece of pop that shows BANNERS could be named anything and his ability to write an incredibly moving song remains unaffected. Says BANNERS of the track:

“The song is about feeling lost at sea and desperately searching for a beacon of light. It’s about waiting for that one big wave to finally pull you under while clinging on to that one last ray of hope. It’s a song to the person in your life that offers salvation while the storm is raging around you.”
