Son Lux today unveils the video for ‘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).

Created by The Made Shop, the video is a unique rotoscopic stop-motion film made with drawing pins and 200 feet of thread.

Of the video Ryan Lott said, “Made Shop continue to outdo themselves as the visual force behind our music. 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.”

The band have also announced a US headline tour, starting June 6th in New York at Bowery Ballroom. They will be in the UK for Visions & Green Man Festivals before returning for a full European tour in October. Details below & more dates to be added soon.

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.
