Son Lux With Their Soothing Track "Vacancy" [feat. Kiah Victoria]

Introducing one talented band known as Son Lux from the start, Son Lux has operated as something akin to a sonic test kitchen. The band strives to question deeply held assumptions about how music is made and re-construct it from a molecular level. 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. The trio strengthened their chemistry and honed their collective intuition while creating, releasing, and touring five recordings, including LPs Bones (2015) and Brighter Wounds (2018). A carefully cultivated musical language rooted in curiosity and balancing opposites largely eschews genre and structural conventions. And yet, the band remains audibly indebted to iconoclastic artists in soul, hip-hop, and experimental improvisation who themselves carved new paths forward. Distilling these varied influences, Son Lux searches for equilibrium of raw emotional intimacy and meticulous electronic constructions. Following the release of their newest single "Vacancy" they project a very soothing track that will surely captivate your ears. Starting the track with a soft instrumentation leading onto Kiah Victoria's sweet and luscious vocals they complete the track fully. Explaining the track further it's the definition of "If I can't give you what you need, I'll make the vacancy." Giving way to a simmering bassline from guitarist Rafiq Bhatia, the music assumes a new trajectory in its closing moments. A potent question lingers in refrain: "Can I love you more just by leaving?”. To the vocals and production this track presents a soothing mood that will surely set the tone for any occasion. But best fitted for a late night drive or just being alone within your thoughts. Go stream "Vacancy" and check out their discography which is filled with amazing tracks.
