Today Lapalux shares a new track from his forthcoming third album for Brainfeeder – “Ruinism”. ’Flickering’ features vocals by Icelandic singer Jófríður Ákadóttir (JFDR) of the bands Gangly, Pascal Pinon and Samaris.
“Stu [Lapalux] and I got together in London when I had just run out the door in Iceland with my laptop and passport – and literally nothing else – so I was in a perfect state of chaos, freedom and exhaustion,” says Jófríður. “The tune came together quite quickly, the only rule I got from Stu was that it couldn’t be about ‘love’. I really like the result, it has a perfect balance of that melancholia-but-you-still-keep-on-going feeling.”
“Ruinism” is released worldwide on 30th June. Amongst the formats is a stunning deluxe blue vinyl 2LP package printed by the high end Parisian atelier Imprimerie du Marais. Listen back to Lapalux onWorldwide FM celebrating Synth Day (in honour of Bob Moog’s birthday) yesterday here.
