Barcelona-hailing electronic producer ARVY made his debut last weekend with “Keep Your Light”. In creating the song, he collaborated with fellow Spanish artist CESC, a gifted singer-songwriter. The uplifting progressive house track was produced with the dancefloor in mind but, thanks to CESC’s emotional lyrics and heartfelt vocals, it can get the listener pensive. Its accompanying video plays into the melancholia evoked.
Talking about the release, ARVY explains: “When Cesc (the singer and writer) showed me some sketches of the song for the first time, I immediately had some ideas in mind. The song was written in a country-pop style but when I understood the meaning of the lyrics, I felt that the song needed a more empowering and energetic production. The lyrics talk about how during hard times (like the pandemic), even though you might be lonely and everything is going wrong, there is always someone that would help you and you should take that person, it’s important. This inspired me to create an energetic drop that helps defeat the feelings of loneliness and sadness and brings hope and joy to it.”
