Son Lux Share New Single “Come Recover (Shelter)”

Son Lux have shared a new single entitled “Come Recover (Shelter)”, ahead of their extensive UK and European live dates next year.

“Come Recover” originally appeared on the trio’s Tomorrows’ album trilogy, and was later reimagined for the technicolor finale of their score for ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’, A24’s multiverse masterstroke. Now, it exists in yet another alternate reality as “Come Recover (Shelter),” a shimmering and delicate solo performance by Son Lux founder Ryan Lott.
On a piano-like virtual instrument of his own making, Lott creates a foundation of intertwining, tentacular lines. Through it, a bright, slow-moving melody leaps and cascades downward in alternation with his voice. Where the film’s version was triumphant and propulsive, this latest exploration of the song is a vulnerable and patient plea.

Utterly striking, the compelling rendition oozes emotion, fragility and this real beauty. A harrowing journey that intensifies with the keys chiming against the sincere vocal harmonies and the expressive landscape.

Son Lux have also added London singer-songwriter Anna B Savage and vocalist and composer Holland Andrews as support on their 2023 headline tour of Europe. All shows are on sale now.

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. Though Son Lux embraces musical exploration as a foundational practice, the band has never-before experimented with format. ‘Tomorrows’ did away with the restrictions of the traditional album, marking a notable departure in feeling from past releases. Whereas prior Son Lux albums have been packed to the brim with ideas, the three-volume format of ‘Tomorrows’ afforded the music space to breathe and develop. Each release sees songs spun together with liminal instrumental spaces, resulting in a more natural flow while letting sound lead in conveying the complexity and tension of the story. ‘Tomorrows’ is out now on City Slang, more information here.

Following the release of ‘Tomorrows’, this year Son Lux have had great success with their original score for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s multiple-award-winning movie ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’. Featuring contributions collaborators Mitski & David Byrne in duet, Randy Newman and Moses Sumney, the 49-track album demonstrates the band’s limitless capability. The soundtrack was released in April 2022 on A24 Music. Listen here.
