Son Lux is the front for mastermind Ryan Lott. His adventures into pushing the boundaries of sonic wonderment are now legendary. His three full-length albums as Son Lux are At War With Walls and Mazes (2008), which earned NPR’s Best New Artist distinction; We Are Rising (2011); and Lanterns (2013), which earned multiple year-end awards. Son Lux’s EP Alternate Worlds (2014) features four tracks reworked from Lanterns, including a collaboration with Lorde. Other collaborators include Sufjan Stevens, Peter Silberman (The Antlers), and Richard Perry (Arcade Fire). Film production credits include work on four major feature films, most notably Looper (2012) and the entire score for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014).
Son Lux’s newest release, the dynamic, dystopian-feeling Bones (2015) was released on Glassnote Records by the trio of Lott, guitarist/composer Rafiq Bhatia, and drummer Ian Chang. Bones received a high 7.2 rating from Pitchfork, and NPR said of the album: “Bones’ songs breathe and flow naturally as they hone and expand upon Son Lux’s dense yet lilting electronic pop.”
