Listen: Son Lux - Remedy
The New York-based experimental pop/post-rock trio Son Lux, are back with a new four-track EP entitled 'Remedy'. The band will donate all profits towards the Southern Law Poverty Centre, a non-profit organisation set up to fight injustice, prejudice and bigotry in US society.
Consisting of tracks created during the 2016 Presidential election, which reflect the band's frustration and disgruntlement with their nation's turbulent socio-political climate and Trump's regime, 'Remedy' packs a powerful punch with dense structures, melodic chutzpah and lyrical fervour.
Lead song, 'Dangerous', is a barmy, multi-layered treat for fans of Radiohead's 'Burn the Witch', Owen Pallett, East India Youth and 'Age of Adz' era Sufjan Stevens, all pleading vocals, tense synth washes, giddy electronic drums and frenetic pizzicato strings creating storms overhead. The title track is a stately rallying cry featuring a crowd-sourced choir of more than 300 voices.
Ryan Lott, Ian Chang and Rafiq Bhatia's 'Remedy' EP was released on 12th of May on the This is Meru label.
