Son Lux "Build a Pyre (Begin Again)" (video)
Published May 28, 2014New York pop experimenter Son Lux delivered the Alternate Worlds EP earlier this week, offering up revisionist versions of cuts from his Lanterns LP, and he has now unveiled a set of visuals behind the fittingly titled revamp of fittingly titled tune "Build a Pyre (Begin Again)."
Against a backdrop of bell chimes, choir vocals, "Flight of the Bumble Bee" synth work and tiny piano melodies, the black and white video presents on-topic shots of a woman holding up an illuminated ebon candle, traces of smoke elegantly whirling in the wind and a fully ablaze bundle of wood.
