Check ‘Em Out: Luxley

 

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 11.59.12 AM

With a sound that is self-described as wildfire dance rock, Luxley combines anthemic dance elements with pop-aesthetics, all tied together with a southern soul. Taking cues from acts like Tanlines, Brothertiger and Beat Connection, Luxley has been featured twice on Spotify’s New Music & Weekend Buzz playlists and charted 5 days on the Spotify US Top 50 Viral chart. Gearing up to drop a new EP this Spring which features official remixes from acts like X-Ambassadors and Magic Man, the Luxley’s funky take on alternative-pop is set to top your playlists. It’s the totally perfect soundtrack for warmer days that lead into never-ending nights.

Newest Love: SOHN

As the release of his debut album draws nearer, SOHN has taken time out to film a 4AD Session with filmmaker and photographer Andreas Waldschuetz in his adopted Austria. Recorded in the outskirts of Vienna, SOHN – flanked by his live band Albin Janoska (synths) and Stefan Fallmann (bass) – performed four songs from his forthcoming album Tremors. The first of those videos is “Artifice” shown above.

“‘Artifice’ was shot in a wide open studio space outside of Vienna – the biggest soundstage in Austria,” says Austrian filmmaker Andreas Waldschuetz. “I chose a reduced and slick backdrop for the video as I wanted to the overall look to be completely clean and futuristic. I recently rewatched Stanley Kubrick’s Space Odyssey 2001 and was pretty inspired by it. Listening to “Artifice” the first thing that popped into my head were neon tubes – I love neon lights. I love its coldness and sterility, and the graphical element that comes with it. All in all a glitchy piece of art.”

To coincide with the release of Tremors, SOHN will play select dates across North America this May – see full list of dates below. For a full tour schedule head to www.sohnmusic.com/shows
