With Lapalux’ new album Lustmore arriving in under two weeks on April 7th, the artist has shared a third track for fans – “Puzzle”. The track, featuring Andreya Triana is available under the jump, so prepare to be taken away on some seriously trippy tuneage.
The artist (aka Stuart Howard) writes, “it’s a very visual song for me, searching for something more lustful and fleeting. It’s about a sort of seedy, underground desire, like an old bar that used to have class, getting slowly seedier, to keep up with the demand for exploitation and filth. I think it sums up the whole feel and mood of the record, that kind of sultry, seedy undertone and the pieces of the puzzle not fitting together properly, as if in a state of limbo where you don’t know where you are, but there’s something strangely comforting about it.
Out April 7th, Lapalux’ Lustmore draws from the idea of hypnagogia, or the limbo of consciousness between being awake and asleep. He drew from a sound palette that emphasizes the retro-futuristic and otherworldly, and took inspiration from old film soundtracks. Drawing from this intersection of film and music, Lapalux’ intent is rooted in making the record an imaginary visual experience, incorporating imagery, characters, storyline and emotion.
