Los Angeles based post-disco/dance-punk duo De Lux have revealed their 29-minute song “Love Is Hard Work“.
Out now via Innovative Leisure, the track follows last’s year fourth album ‘Do You Need A Release?’. Get it here.
“Love Is Hard Work” is a continuous 29 minute recording and something that Sean Guerin from De Lux has been wanting to make for a while.
According to Guerin: “Before De Lux, I used to write long songs, but never really finish them. Written and recorded in mid 2021 for two months, it felt like a breeze to make ‘Love Is Hard Work’ because I had been thinking and talking about it for so long. Influenced by a lot of artists from ‘79-‘82, like Peter Gordon, Electric Mind, Evans Pyramid or Dizzy K, the track is intended to feel like a continuous flow of dance music. Instead of a stream of consciousness in lyricism, this is more of a stream of consciousness in instrumentation and songwriting; where ideas flow from one to the other without too much thought.”
Unapoletically joyous and bountiful throughout, it ventures through electro-disco, boogie and synth-pop moods with an assured optimism and radiance. Sunny melodies, yearnful vox, powerful drums – it’s got everything you need to keep you powered up whehter listening in the car, at home or in the club. An adventerous prospect executed with a sincere love for all forms of dance music.
