Little Light is the second single from the upcoming Carnal Insect album by The Fair Attempts. This pure EBM dance song fully embodies the experience of profoundly mixed emotions, and both the music and lyrics progress in unexpected ways. This song also includes samples of a piano playing while its on fire. The piano hisses and cries as it goes down in flames, but it sounds so beautiful in its tragic demise.

The lyrics were co-written by Friendly Timo and his wife. While he composed songs for his upcoming Carnal Insect album, he was inspired to create a song when his wife became overwhelmed by intense and conflicting emotions in response to a joyous experience.
When two people write lyrics together, they each contribute their own meanings to the overall message of the song. For Friendly Timo, it’s a story about how a tiny little light within darkness can be like a raging inferno that will consume you—as well as a message that entertaining even a speck of hope in dark times can be frightening and consuming. “In the end, Little Light tells that I have hope and nice things are happening to me now, though it’s likely consuming me, and it terrifies me to my core.”
To his wife, Little Light is about becoming so comfortable in dark emotions that sudden joy is terrifying and painful—one can easily destroy what they have with their own negativity and fears. “Tormenting yourself over past failures can become a habit to the extent that a joyous experience carries terror and sadness with it.”
