Son Lux – Live Another Life

Son Lux – Live Another Life

I got sent this song and i fell in love. The beautiful voice just makes your heart melt.. aaaah.. The heavenly mixing of the vovals and the instruments slowly fading in to the sond is just genius . And then later when the full twisted rhythm starts. Ah, its a beauty. i love it.

They say: “Live Another Life”, the first single from the upcoming album, deals with the tension of control and how identities can be bound together in relationships. A simmering percussive loop sets the stage for Lott’s threadbare entrance: “I’m done asking you to be healed for me, I’m done asking you to heel to me.” As the music approaches a boil, bursts of a smeared, hashy choir undergird Ryan Lott’s lyrics as a flurry of drums snaps the song into an urgent tumble.  The music provides an appropriate parallel for the sustained cacophony of the present moment, advancing a friction that reveals the strange in the familiar and the familiar in the strange. While this carefully crafted inversion acclimatizes the ear to tension, the steadily hardening exterior fractures at unlikely moments, revealing a strikingly visceral, emotional core.
