Lux Know We Are Not The Same
Seattle based Lux are a dynamic duo who have never played live and aren't sure if they ever want to. They met and became a band after answering a Craigslist ad. They were receiving offers for tours before even having a record. They are self confessed control freaks, they much prefer the confined spaces of a recording studio to the chaos filled stage.
The band is currently prepping their debut album We Are Not The Same for an April release and because of the kindness in their heart they've chosen to give us a sneak peek of said record. Sharing a bit of distortion and lo-fi production similar to early Raveonettes recordings with a bit of stark synth pop that might remind you of someone like Fischerspooner meeting the Magnetic Fields the band have a style that's clearly all their own. What's that all mean? Well how about we call Lux garage synth? (How's that for a new sub genre?)
Raw, melodic, and filled with a sense of ethereal wonder Lux have created something that's easy to fall in love with and something tells us we won't be the same after hearing the whole album.
