Since Nai Harvest broke up last month, one half of the former duo, Ben Thompson, has formed a new project with partner Meg Williams called Luxury Death. The Manchester outfit has wasted little time in sharing their debut track, “Radiator Face,” via Noisey. Luxury Death may have started as “something else to do in the bedroom together,” but they’ve quickly found their own sound. Their debut single is a great balance of deep-burrowing bass and crunchy, soaring guitars with some clever synth patterns clearing the path between the two. Williams and Thompson beautifully harmonize as they sing about how they want to lift each other up with lines like: “I don’t want to be your chemical strait jacket anymore.” If this first single is any indication, the first body of work from them will be awesome. Check it out.
