Son Lux - "You Don't Know Me"
With the release of their sophomore album, Bones, only a few weeks away, Son Lux has released the second single to get us excited. "You Don't Know Me" is more experimental than their last single, but it still has that core production flair that got me interested in the group in the first place - grandiose arrangements contrasted with minimal segments. "You Don't Know Me" uses some pretty dark and dirty-sounding brass(?) with a very light synth line, all with fluttering strings in the background. At times it is organized chaos, and others it seems so perfectly meshed together that you're almost stopped in your track. Most importantly though, this song has definitely gotten me excited about the full album release.
Bones is due out June 23rd on Glassnotes Records. Son Lux is also touring (with a stop in Vancouver on June 26th), check out the full dates here.
