yorwos There is a dark, ominous tone throughout the whole album that is completely juxtaposed by the beauty and incredible sound of the Son Lux Trio. Favorite track: Slowly.

snowface I have been fortunate to know of Ryan's work since Walls and Mazes was released thanks to our community radio in Milwaukee, WMSE. Although it was not a balanced album, I heard a ton of potential there and you have lived up to it in subsequent works. Keep pushing, your talent and vision is extraordinary, I hope you will consider making a symphonic program to tour with, and then swing through Chicago and Milwaukee. Dream State is the standout, thank you and keep up the good work! Favorite track: Dream State.

about

Son Lux is the grand genre-less dream of Los Angeles composer Ryan Lott brought to roiling, vivid life with the help of two New Yorkers, guitarist Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang. Each is a writer, producer, and performer with omnivorous taste and a penchant for wild improvisation—a band whose mix of electronic pop, unusual soul, and outright experimentalism feels more inviting than ever on the project's fifth album, 'Brighter Wounds.' The songs therein leave behind Son Lux's typically universal themes for deeply personal fare. While making 'Brighter Wounds,' Lott became a father to a baby boy and lost a best friend to cancer. Days of "firsts" were also days of "lasts," and the normal fears that accompany parenthood were compounded by a frightening new reality—Lott's son arrived shortly after Election Day. These songs draw on all of that: warm reflections of a fading past, pain wrenched from a still-present loss, and a mix of anxiety and hope for a future that is promised to no one.

about

Son Lux New York, New York

From the start, Son Lux has operated as something akin to a sonic test kitchen.

What began as a solo project for founder Ryan Lott expanded in 2014, thanks to a kinship with Ian Chang and Rafiq Bhatia too strong to ignore. ... more
