Luluc – “Without A Face” (Stereogum Premiere)
The Melbourne/Brooklyn folk-duo Luluc (pronounced “loo-luke”) got off to a good start back in ’08 with its self-released debut Dear Hamlyn and opening slots for the likes of Fleet Foxes and Jose Gonzalez. Now Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett have signed to Sub Pop and will release Passerby this summer. Its new single “Without A Face” captures the band’s homespun charm in its main melody which sits over spindly strings that move like ripples in still water. Luluc produced the album with Aaron Dessner of the National, another band quite skilled with multi-layered sounds. Listen to it below.
Passerby is out 7/15 via Sub Pop.
