Joyful Noise Recordings is excited to share the video for Son Lux‘s “Lanterns Lit” from their 2013 full-length Lanterns. The video premiered via Noisey, where they noted that “Son Lux makes music that is bewitching. Elements of electronica and classical music are gently folded together beneath a beautiful cracking voice.” Noisey called the video “Beautifully shot… something absolutely worth watching again, and then again, and then again.” The clip was directed and produced by SJ Finlay, with visual effects by Nisha Kumkeaw and coloring by David Tomiak (Brass Tacks Films). About the process of creating the video, Finlay said “This music video was made while shooting promotional materials for Hope for the Nations as well as a short film to help children at risk in South East Asia. To keep updated about the release of that film, follow #ChildrenofChange.””Lanterns Lit” is available to stream or embed HERE.
The tour follows the May 27 release of the Alternate Worlds EP, which featured reimagined versions of the tracks from Lanterns. In addition to “Build A Pyre (Begin Again),”Alternate Worlds features a collaboration with Lorde on “Easy (Switch Screens),” which came to be after the New Zealand breakout star began covering the original version live.
Beyond releasing Alternate Worlds and worldwide touring, Son Lux released an album with Sisyphus, his collaborative project with Sufjan Stevens and rapper Serengeti, whose self-titled debut was released on March 18th via Joyful Noise / Asthmatic Kitty. Additionally, Lott is a featured songwriter, producer and performer on “Troubled World” off WinterSpringSummerFall, the new mixtape from Beyonce producer BOOTS. Son Lux also recently scored the upcoming film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, due this September. Lott, equal parts producer and composer, has been delving into further collaborations as Son Lux, with more details to be unveiled in the coming months.
