According to Act of Love “Looking for the Light’ is our ‘introduction’ tune on a few different levels. It’s a handshake & a hug on meeting, to draw you all in to the more complex & varied delights of Act of Love’s ‘Cosmic Soul Music’ (one reviewer’s term!).
The live set begins & ends with contrasting quiet & ‘bigger’ versions of the song. Looking for the Light is simply about falling (or ‘dreaming’) in love out of the blue, from nowhere & with no choice & the dreamlike feel of the song is a deliberate attempt to take the listener on that journey!..
An instrumental version of the song has already been used in a short film for the blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan, with voice over by Steve Coogan (we feel there’s plenty more scope for film & TV placement).
