The new music video for song "Light" shows Georgia-born, Brooklyn-based artist Hite stripping off and dancing in the waves, by herself and for herself.  Referred to as a "modern southern gothic lament through baroque pop and Appalachian folk," "Light" is part of Hite/Julia Easterlin's debut album Light Of A Strange Day, due for release in March.
