SON LUX announces Rough Trade East show next Friday Aug 7th ahead of Visions Festival performance

Album 'Bones' out now on Glassnote

 Come & see Son Lux for free at London's Rough Trade East next Friday at 7pm!


With a show at Oval Space for Visions Festival next Saturday August 8th, SON LUX have added a free Rough Trade East show for 7pm on Friday August 7th.

The band released their new album ‘Bones’ last month via Glassnote to high praise and recently shared a stunning new video for single ‘You Don’t Know Me’, featuring Emmy-nominated Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany.

Watch the video for ‘You Don’t Know Me’ below!

The dates mark the start of a busy August, appearing at festivals across Europe, including Green Man Festival in Wales. The band then return for a full European tour in October, taking in a headline show at London’s Village Underground on Oct 21st – details below.

Founded by producer-composer Ryan Lott in 2007, Son Lux “works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams” (Pitchfork). With the recent additions to the band of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Bones is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members' unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. Few bands have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators: LordeBeyoncé producer BootsSufjan Stevens, Matthew Dear, Busdriver, Vijay Iyer, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw. 


Praise for 'Bones':

“Lott croons plaintive lyrics over weaponised sci-fi soundscapes fizzing with post-dubstep beats, bleeps and electro-classical string flourishes.” – 7/10, Uncut

“Wonderful” - 8/10, NME

“An unpredictable and expertly-crafted album by an artist at his peak” - London in Stereo

"‘Bones’ is haunting, arresting, and unlike anything else.” - DIY

"Bones is a remarkable, chameleonic entity” - 7.5/10, The Line of Best Fit

"There has always been a gloomy beauty about Ryan Lott’s work & this darkly-lit electronic beauty is at the heart of Bones” - 4/5, The Irish Times

“It’s clear that there’s a bone fide pop songwriter buried beneath the extravagances. Luckily for us though, Son Lux veers away from the straight forward and chooses to make records as wonderfully complex as Bones” - 8/10, Drowned in Sound
