Living somewhere between Vespertine, Dummy, and Dark Side of The Moon is NYC-based four-piece Una Lux.
Do the artists behind these iconic albums need to be identified in order to evoke the feelings their music creates? Probably not, as the tone of each of these classic records is individual enough—just like the music of Una Lux, arriving with a sound that speaks for itself and possibly you as well.
This can be heard for the first time when the “slippery gravity” of the first Una Lux single “Simon,” featuring the unforgettably clarion vocals of singer Kelso Norris, is released on August 26th. Brooklyn Vegan recently premiered the track, describing it as “amber-hued synth rock with a grandiose slo-mo attack.”
The sound of “Simon” is rare: beautiful but troubled, futuristic but immediate, mysterious but universal.
“I've always felt ‘Simon’ was about the need to be heard and understood, no matter who you are or what your mental state is,” Norris says. “Simon just wants someone to understand him.” The track will be followed by its official music video, andUna Lux is also now finishing its debut EP with a release date to be announced soon.
Intimate and yearning, this first group of Una Lux songs are being brought to the surface by producer Nick Sansano(Sonic Youth, Le Tigre, Public Enemy), who began working with the band in 2013 after recognizing their idiosyncratic style and ability to translate the human condition into something timeless.
