As Son Lux, Los Angeles-based producer/singer Ryan Lott imbues minimal soundscapes with bursts of color and undeniable movement. His latest video — for Lanterns standout “Pyre” — does the same in its own way. Above, we see both dancer Bennyroyce Royon and our host against a black backdrop. They are caked in white powder and makeup, but soon, smears and rivulets of paint appear, seeming to move with the song’s surging pulse. The Craig Brothers-directed clip comes courtesy of Stereogum. Two months ago we heard rapper Busdriver rhyme over a remixed version of “Easy.” Both songs are found on Lanterns, Lott’s third album, out now on Joyful Noise Recordings. Son Lux will be touring with a full band in 2014.
