Largely influenced by Jack Garratt, Sylvan Esso and Allen Stone, the up-and-coming Boston, MA-based indie R&B/indie electro pop duo luhx. have a sound that will likely capture the attention of the blogosphere. As you’ll hear on their latest single “Stay For The Night,” the duo pairs a tight yet remarkably breezy groove based around finger snaps, strummed guitar, stormy piano keyboards, swirling electronics and hip-hop influenced drum programming with ethereal harmonies singing deeply melancholy lyrics, seemingly drawn from the songwriters’ lives.
In the case of this single, the song’s narrator(s) are pleading with an equally troubled soul that they will protect them. And for such young songwriters, the devotion within the song seems beyond their years and deeply affecting.
