LODATO invites listeners to step out under the ‘Neon Lights’
With peaking radio presence in past years, LODATO‘s dance-pop presence has been felt across a crossover conversion of Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart,” not to mention hybrid originals encompassing “HOME” and “Good Thing,” among other gems in his treasure chest. In a new year of music, LODATO continues to assert his status as an ascending authority in dance-pop sound via “Neon Lights,” an ’80s-inflected tack-on to January’s “Blurry” and March’s “Feel All My Lovin’.” Stitched together with synth-led melodies and a warm vocal sample that plays to a pop strength—an enticing hook—”Neon Lights” is a windows-down moment immortalized in a three-minute and two-second runtime. Though LODATO initially made his name in the remix pool, the Queens native is noticeably underscoring his capacity for original creation, and the dance community is responding accordingly.
