Shimmering synths, electronic beats and eerie vocals combine on true romance, the latest tune from Lusts. Otherworldly at the same time as being rooted in city grit, it’s got a dancey hook and pacey beats. Brothers Andrew and James Stone, are returning with their brand new LP call of the void, out November 16th.
Of the track, they tell us ‘true romance’ takes influence from classic romantic literature, drawing a line between love affairs throughout the ages, and channeling them through our own gothic perspective. It’s a mixture of the intertwining stories of Cleopatra and Caesar, Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe, Clarence and Alabama, and The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway. We were also inspired by this quote from Wide Sargasso Sea – ‘Blot out the moon, Pull down the stars. Love in the dark, for we’re for the dark. So soon, so soon.’ true romance is about unrequited love, and all the unusual and intricate ways we express ourselves. We’re all different, we’re all strange, and that’s a beautiful thing.’
