SON LUX ‘PYRE’ VIDEO: “A HAUNTING AND MINIMALISTIC GEM”

SonLux64Mallory-Talty-Stereoscope-PhotographySon Lux unveils this splendid video for ‘Pyre’, a haunting and minimalistic gem taken from his impressive album ‘Lanterns’ (on Joyful Noise).

The video is directed by The Craig Brothers and features Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) and dancer Bennyroyce Royon.

Equal parts producer and composer, Son Lux bridges an unusual gap between old-world music discipline and next-level experimentation.

His hird full-length album, and his first for Joyful Noise (Kishi Bashi, Sebadoh, etc.), positions Son Lux at the helm of an impressive ensemble of instrumentalists and singers, including Chris Thile (The Punch Brothers), Peter Silberman (The Antlers), DM Stith, Lily & Madeleine, Darren King (Mutemath), Ieva Berberian (Gem Club) and yMusic (Dirty Projectors, Bon Iver).

Son Lux will tour ‘Lanterns’ across Europe in January. All tour dates will feature a full band backing Ryan Lott (aka Son Lux) with drummer Ian Chang (Landlady, Matthew Dear, People Get Ready) and guitarist Rafiq Bhatia (“the most promising improvisers in the United States today” – New York Times).
