Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Luxury Death.
Laced in a deathly romanticism, Luxury Death’s ‘Radiator Face’ relishes the lo-fi nature of their bittersweet pop. By contrast, its new video (premiering below) is as high-end as they come.
The boyfriend-girlfriend duo frame their intimacy (“I feel at home on your collarbone”) with imagery that sits well within that luxury camp. All extreme close-ups of warped everyday objects being burnt, battered and bruised, the Ed Crisp directed clip is proof that there’s artistic statements by the bucketload buried beneath that seemingly-frivolous, warming fuzz-pop.
Luxury Death play the below shows in the coming weeks; ‘Radiator Face’ is out now via PNK SLM.
