Be on the lookout for LEX.
The Los Angeles-based foursome–ALEXIS (vocals, synthesizers), LP (synthesizers), LICIA (bass, synthesizers) and J (drums)–create their modern electro-pop sounds by using all analog vintage synthesizers, and everything is executed live during their performance–with no backing tracks or computers onstage. Writing for Consequence Of Sound.net, Ben Kaye described their debut single “Mystery Boy” as “Bouncing, dark synths juxtaposed against lead singer Alexis’ almost hushed coos give the track a sense of intrigue befitting its title” (March 27, 2015). Listen to “Mystery Boy” (HERE) and catch the group on their west coast tour which kicks off this weekend (dates below).
“Mystery Boy” is one of the five songs featured on LEX’s self-titled debut EP, out Tuesday, May 5 and produced by longtime Daft Punk collaborator Peter Franco. Franco–who engineered Random Access Memories (2013) and won the 2014 Grammy Award for “Best Engineered Album” as well as “Record of The Year” for “Get Lucky”– helped hone their synth-heavy sound with old school disco beats.
For the visual elements of their live show, Daft Punk lighting designers Martin Phillips and John McGuire (Daft Punk, Kanye West, deadmau5 and Prince) are collaborating with the group. LEX will launch a west coast club tour on Sunday, March 29 in Seattle, then hit Portland and Eugene, OR as well as San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles, CA (dates below).
