"'Light Years Away' is the 4th single from australian musician/producer Amos Wellings,the combination of a neat production and emotive melodies with retro synths inspire you to let yourself go through a daydream of melancholy and emotional mood, the vocals are the "cherry on the cake" in this, the vocal style and tones are perfectly tuned with the overall perception of the song, let yourself immerse in the emotions that Skyepaint delivers."

INSIDE THE TRACK: [artist's commentary]
Hey, I’m Skyepaint from Australia. “Light Years Away” is my 4th single, written and recorded in my home studio.
Lyrically, the song deals with overcoming the self-doubt that pursuing a creative career often brings.
Musically, the song is inspired by mainstays of the synthpop genre old and new, from Depeche Mode and The Human League to CHVRCHES and The Midnight, particularly the way in which these artists use dynamics shifts to reinforce their emotive vocals and sincere lyrics.
“Light Years Away” was produced and mixed in Logic Pro X, primarily using Waves Renaissance plugins and numerous software synths including Sylenth1 and Dexed.
