Lucern Raze – “Someone Like You” (Stereogum Premiere)

Lucern Raze is the new solo project of Luke Reilly, who settled in Stockholm and founded his label PNKSLM after being in UK garage rock band Sex Beet. He’s gearing up to release his debut album, Stockholm One, which was recorded in one week in the Swedish capital. “Someone Like You” is a slower cut from the album, and it passes by in a buttery smooth and placid haze. Reilly’s vocals breeze over the music, the guitars swelling around him during the chorus. “I was looking for someone like you/ For now, I guess you’ll do,” he starts, stuttering that last word infectiously. The track’s a slow churner, but it’s sure to win you over. Listen below.

Stockholm One is out 2/25 via PNKSLM/Burger Records. You can preorder the vinyl here. He’ll be traveling to the States in March for shows at SXSW and Burgerama.
