Beautiful Darkness:  Son Lux – “Dream State”

Son Lux

“Dream State”

Brighter Wounds

Son Lux is one of the greatest bands out there that no one knows about.  This band has so much talent.  I love them so much.  Their bio says everything, so let me quote it:

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.

This is great music for thinking people, and the lyric is video is amazing.  Check them out.  You will love them like I love them.
