Luxury Death’s debut single ‘Radiator Face’ sounds kind of like Monster-era R.E.M. covering Nirvana’s cover of ‘Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam’. Except actually better than that. Fuzzed and phased guitars lead the song, with added accordion synth, and the boyfriend/girlfriend duo’s wonderfully in sync vocals and idiosyncratic lyrics. It’s joyful in a lackadaisical manner which sounds like it was as much fun to write and play as it is to listen to. Indie kids all over will be falling in love to this one.
The accompanying video by Ed Crisp is an artistic and playful adventure, replete with close ups of fiery tennis balls, a golden skull getting an egging, and Meg Williams (vocals/keys) making out with the head off Michelangelo’s statue of David.
According to Ben Thompson (guitar/vocals) and Meg Williams they started writing music as “something else to do in the bedroom”.
