I’ve been checking and waiting for The Luyas to come out with a new album since Too Beautiful To Work, and today my diligence has paid off. The Luyas’ newest musical venture, Animator, is certainly a change from the past, but change is good, right? Animator isn’t nearly as head-bobbingly poppy as their previous sounds, but The Luyas come together to make a catchy, moody, and powerful collection of songs.
The heartfelt tone of Animator is set from the first track: an eight-minute and thirty-eight second crescendo filled with drums, fluttering violin, and the delicate voice of lead singer, Jessie Stein. Give their single, “Fifty Fifty,” a listen, and let us know what band you’d like to hear a subsequent album from!
