Trained in classical composition, Son Lux, aka Ryan Lott, achieves a pleasant balance between electronics, pop vocals and modern arrangements for classical acoustic instruments. This combination echoes the orchestration of Sufjan Stevens but also provides a spotlight for the orchestral instruments to go beyond simplistic folk riffs and explore contrapuntal and textural complexities.
In addition to the official album announcement, Son Lux has released the single “Rising” off of We Are Rising as well as an interesting video documenting the creation of the album’s artwork, which, in keeping with the theme of ridiculous deadlines, was completed in 28 hours.
Check below for a stream of “Rising,” the video doc and the album’s tracklist.
