After a triumphant European tour, including an intense sold out show at The Lexington in London, and with a wobbly YouTube video of Lorde covering his last single, Easy, doing the rounds, Son Lux has revealed more plans for this year plus a hard-hitting new video for Alternate World.
Alternate World is the opening track of Son Lux’s new record Lanterns, out now on Joyful Noise Recordings. The video shows a prickly and haunting story worthy of the power Son Lux captures within the track.
Ryan Lott, AKA Son Lux, explains: “The past is a type of reality that haunts the present and the film’s story and imagery evokes this feeling beautifully.”
Directors Truman & Cooper add: “The film was shot last December in Normandy. We really wanted to situate the story in a moody, bleak and hazy environment. We love the off season atmosphere over there, its really melancholic. We think that watching the couple wander in this environment would reinforce the feeling of loneliness”.
In addition to Son Lux’s previously announced headline show at London’s XOYO on May 21 and performance at Latitude Festival, a number of regional dates have now been added.
Son Lux has also recently reignited his work with Sufjan Stevens and Serengeti under the name SISYPHUS (previously called s / s / s), more information here.
