Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina dream pop/noise rock/post-punk band Cor de Lux have announced the release of their new studio album ‘Media‘.
The 9-track record will be out on February 10. Pre-order your copy here.
MEDIA is a message from our hearts to human civilization. The album draws on emotions from being on lockdown, media and uncertainty of what will happen next. The underrated silver linings we all have in common but have to fight to see. What we experience still needs to be questioned while remembering that conflicting beliefs can end with healthy discourse if we see each other as equals. If we are scared to talk to each other, we have already lost.
The band needed each other during the “Covid Years“ for a sort of therapy and this foundation helped build the structure of the songs. That and the powerful urge to learn more than what we are told, both mentally and musically.
They band said:
There was so much checking in on people around us and when we got together to play it was our way of forging ahead and getting the emotions put down as Art. The angst post punk driven builds in most of these songs came naturally as the entire album was recorded from jams with little direction as we wanted the songs to build emotionally. We lost our original drummer shortly after recording the last song. A personal decision by him to leave he felt like the story was written and these songs are a part of him as much as they are of us.
