Son Lux Unveils New Video For "Alternate World"

Son Lux's Lanterns might be one of 2013's most underrated records. Ryan Lott (aka Son Lux) has developed a unique brand of synth-laden pop rooted in classical music, especially the minimalist tradition, which hits its apex in Lanterns with tracks like "Easy" or "Alternate World." Lott has now released a video for the track "Alternate World."

The video, directed by Truman & Cooper, is a hazy, dark interpretation of the song. The directors told Drowned in Sound, where the video premiered, the following aobut the video:

1) What matters for us are the true emotions. The song is so powerful that we wanted to push the actors to the edge to get a strong relationship, especially in the dark moments. We chose the actors partly because they knew each other for a long time so it was a bit easier for them to be really intense in a short amount of time.
