Taken from their forthcoming fifth album ‘Brighter Wounds’, out on February 9th on City Slang, Son Lux have shared a second track called ‘Slowly’. It’s a delicate, slightly off-kilter track where synths and drums seems to move in different orbits, and Ryan Lott’s feathery, beautiful but fragile vocal seems to half draw things together but be pushed away from them as well. Speaking on the track, Lott comments: “A lie is a drug. It treads the line between poison and medicine. “Slowly” deals with the ability of untruth to evolve into reality, and then function as a drug. But can a lie be a salve? Must we always bear the burden of believing what is real?”

The band have released an accompanying video for the track. Director Alex Cook’s video for “Slowly” follows two caretakers as they sacrificially tend to a small group of patients. “The idea for the video was born from the track’s unnerving beat and deceptive undertones” he says. “The story takes place in an alternate, dystopian time in which people transfer their negative memories to one another through a mysterious machine.”
