O russo Sergey Iakimov é a mente e o criador do projeto Herlights que já tem no currículo dois trabalhos, os singles "One Day" e "For The Empty ", onde ambos passeiam pela conexão The Wake (fase Harmony) e Radio Dept, (quando eles eram bons), sim, um dreampop cristalino com tendências pós punk, notadamente essas referências se explicitam em "For The Empty" na belíssima "Alice" e principalmente na perfeição de "Monotony".
Apenas então somente por conta de "Monotony" o Herlights se credencia como uma das grandes promessas para esse 2017, que assim seja.
