SON LUX
– SHARES ‘MAKING OF THE VIDEO’ FOR STOP-MOTION ‘CHANGE IS EVERYTHING’ CLIP
– ‘BONES’ ALBUM OUT JUNE 22 ON GLASSNOTE
– UK FESTIVALS & OCTOBER TOUR

Last week Son Lux shared the beautifully crafted video for current single ‘Change is Everything’. This week, we have a behind the scenes glimpse at how 200 drawing pins & 500 feet of thread came together for this unique clip.

Created by The Made Shop, the video is a unique rotoscopic stop-motion film.

“Made Shop continue to outdo themselves as the visual force behind our music” Lott explains. “They bring to the eyes a type of unexpected magic, a strange but familiar energy. These are the things we hope our music brings to your ears.”

Change is Everything,’ the first single from the band’s fourth full-length album, Bones, which is out June 22nd via Glassnote Records (pre-order).

Bones is a call to action, a document of personal and collective uprising. Themes of metamorphosis resonate in architectural, vivid sound.

Founded by producer-composer Ryan Lott in 2007, Son Lux “works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams” (Pitchfork). With the recent additions to the band of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Bones is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members’ unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. Few bands have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators: LordeBeyoncé producer BootsSufjan Stevens, Matthew Dear, Busdriver, Vijay Iyer, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw.
