[PREMIERE]: luhx. – poison

There’s a new synth-soul band from Boston, Massachusetts who’s about to leave you in shambles with their haunting new song, Poison. Inspired by the likes of Jack Garratt, Allen Stone, and Oh Wonder, luhx. delivers silken resplendence and fragile delicacy on the beautiful gem. Poison is far to marvelously moving a piece to be venomous, except perhaps to the heart itself, its pointed darts dripping in tender, lovelorn anguish. Emotively captivating vocals and a soft, gentle groove evoke Brooklyn’s WET alongside a softly glowing Shura warmth, while some of Kevin Garrett’s tingles inducing soulfulness commingles with a crisp pop appeal reminiscent of Sara Bareilles’ heart wrenching piano ballads of yore. Poison is a stunning song, a treasure whose glimmering polish lures us blissfully into its bittersweet entanglement. It’s also a reverberating statement from a very exciting new Boston act, a must watch band as the year continues to slowly unfurl.
