"It's a great battle between guitars and technology ... We'll call it a draw"

- Rigsy, BBC Radio Ulster

"Combining programmed electronica with soaring anthemic dynamics ... ‘Kill It’ [distills] the essence of the band’s ardent alt-rock approach"

- Brian Coney, The Thin Air

"Beautifully written, lyrically potent and above all, authentically A Northern Light … [an] anthem for the downhearted"

- Taylor Johnson, Encore NI


- Phil Taggart, BBC Radio One

"Sleek, professional, anthemic [and] very different to the sound of other groups currently plying their trade locally"

- Christopher McBride, The Metaphorical Boat

"Stadium-sized slices of catchy, emotive and highly atmospheric indie rock"

- David Roy, Irish News

"Intelligent, driven guitar music"

- Nick Hopkinson, Strangeways Radio

Welcome to our website, lovely humans.
Here you will find our music, information about our past, present and future; how and why we do what we do, day in, day out.

You are joining us 5 years into this whole mad journey, and right now is the perfect time to get involved in A Northern Light. In 2016 we are releasing lots of music, starting with 'Paranoia', the lead single from Kingdoms: Part One. We'll be playing absolutely everywhere people want us too, so if you want us to come round your way, give us a shout.

We make music that we love; music that we find interesting; music that improves the mood after a fairly bleak day. It can be difficult just to put this all into words, so best have a listen for yourself!
Sign up for the mailing list for more dramatic, indulgent thoughts like this and, on occasion, we will post music, videos, lyrics, poems and, uh, shopping lists for your viewing pleasure.
