Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
David Chandler and Leah Rosen are Lux and this is their debut album. It’s a pretty mixed bag of styles, but it all holds together well.
Coroner’s Office is a synthy and poppy song where Chandler sounds suitably laconic.
The Window sees Rosen on vocals with a sweet tone and a catchy very eighties backing. It’s a perfectly summery song and it might endear itself to the listener by that fact alone.
Cerebellar Ataxia is a haunting moment that sees the duo making some very filmic music. It sounds like a sci-fi soundtrack with swirling synths and moody tones.
I’ll Try to Ignore the Fact That You Are Drowning is a harder-edged track that sees Chandler assume a more energized tone and it suits him well.
It’s a remarkable album all told.
