Son Lux unveil ‘Slowly’ video | The line between poison and medicine

With their new album ‘Brighter Wounds’ set for release February 9th via City Slang), the aptly splendid video – directed by Alex Cook – for Son Lux’s equally stunning and clever tune ‘Slowly’, work in harmony and flawlessly showcases a rather fine example of next-level experimentation sound.

Son Lux’s Ryan Lott explains: “A lie is a drug. It treads the line between poison and medicine. “Slowly” deals with the ability of untruth to evolve into reality, and then function as a drug. But can a lie be a salve? Must we always bear the burden of believing what is real?”.

Director Alex Cook adds: “The idea for the video was born from the track’s unnerving beat and deceptive undertones” he says. “The story takes place in an alternate, dystopian time in which people transfer their negative memories to one another through a mysterious machine.”
