Following the release of the song “Only Way” in November, Denver-based funk ensemble Envy Alo is at it again with another new single, “Give in to the Light”. The recording acts as the latest off their forthcoming full-length studio album, Ship It, due out in January.
“Give in to the Light” is now on all major music platforms, conveniently released today ahead of the band’s sold-out show at Cervantes Other Side in Denver with Goose and DIZGO tonight.
In contrast to the gritty rocker “Only Way”, “Give in to the Light” finds the band in a smooth, inspirational place. Within seconds, the rich, comforting vocal harmonies from singer Callie Morrocco bring a smile to your face, enabling the listener to drift into a state of blissful zen.
Written by guitarist Kevin Hinder, the tune is lyrically refreshing as the anthem calls on listeners to overcome adversity and diffuse negativity by embracing a positive outlook in life. Ominous lines like “Everyday is meant to be a struggle…” or “When darkness is everywhere…” quickly give way to a prescription to “Keep your head up high/Give in to the Light/Let it all go/Don’t stop the fight.” Regardless of circumstance, the song beautifully encourages all of us to not only find the light within ourselves, but to share it with the world.
Listen to “Give in to the Light” below.

Recorded at Evergroove Studio in Evergreen, CO, “Give in to the Light” continues with a polished, radio-ready sound for the band. Catchy runs from Hinder and saxophonist Kevin Supina line the tune and gracefully set up Morrocco’s verses throughout. Following a chorus, a tasteful tenor sax solo from Supina flows into a climactic Hammond B3 organ solo from keyboardist Aaron Pettine-perhaps the happiest moment in the objectively happy single.
In addition to tonight’s show with Goose and DIZGO, tickets are now available for the band’s Album Release Party at Lost Lake in Denver on Saturday, January 18th here.
