Luluc to release ‘Passerby’ LP Via Sub Pop

Luluc Releases 'Passerby' Via Sub Pop (July 15th) in Australia and New Zealand via Mistletone on July 11th + Listen to their single "Without A Face"

Melbourne, Australia band Luluc has signed to Sub Pop, and will release Passerby, their label debut, on CD/ LP/ DL July 14th in Europe and July 15th in North America. The album will also be available in Australia and New Zealand via Mistletone on July 11th. Passerby, led by the songs “Without A Face,” “Small Window,” “Tangled Heart,” “Reverie on Norfolk Street,” and the title track, was recorded and produced by Luluc and Aaron Dessner at Aaron’s Garage in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in New York.

You can now listen to “Without A Face,” the lead-off track from Passerby above.

In a world where instant gratification is the norm, patience has become a rare commodity. But for Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett, who make up indie-folk duo Luluc (pronounced Loo-LUKE), letting things unfold in due time not only defines their career trajectory, it also works as a pretty good description of their approach to making music. Music that Sub Pop co-founder Jonathan Poneman describes as “bracing, subtle, tender and magnificent”. So while it may seem like Randell and Hassett’s history is littered with all kinds of good luck—from their initial meeting, to their relationship with The National’s Aaron Dessner, to their deal with Sub Pop, to grabbing the attention of Nick Drake’s producer—being in the right place at the right time isn’t just about fate. It’s about knowing when something feels right and having the confidence that people will respond when they’re ready.
