In anticipation of the LA duo’s upcoming fourth album, De Lux are releasing a string of singles and two EPs. The first EP, titled “Uneven”, contains three new songs brimming with a newfound playful confidence that is the result of throwing out the old playbook and embracing the uncomfortable unknown.
The second single from the EP - "Something’s Never Break" is about old habits dying hard. The lyrics tow the line between earnesty and irony throughout the song, making you wonder if they’re sung with a wink or a nod. The band’s special brand of cheeky social commentary rewards the listener with some of their best one liners:
“I hope one day/I can make enough money/So I can have an opinion/And I don't have to fake it.”
It’s got a trance inducing off kilter synth intro and guitars that sound like they’re melting in slow motion as vocalist Sean Guerin puts on a character that sounds like an extension of the sort of musical theatre he performed in past songs like "Oh Man the Future" and "Music Snob." While his character can’t seem to change his life, the song might change yours.
