“Says You” by The Luyas

The Luyas have revealed their new video and title-track for their forthcoming release Says You. Watch the Amanda Bonaiuto-directed and animated video below. The band will release Says You, a new five-track EP on September 16th via Paper Bag Records. The Luyas have also announced new tour dates, starting September 9th in Burlington, Vermont.

Says You is The Luyas’ first new recording since their 2012 album, Animator. It was produced by the exquisite Jace Lasek of the Besnard Lakes. “The lyrics are funny and smart, at times even touching. The music is playful, and diverse: ranging from cacophonous piles of synth, to woven patterns of interlacing melody. There are pads of horns mimicking some great, imagined organ, and layered rhythms egging each other along. Each of the EP’s five songs is a little world of its own, appearing with its own characters, particular sense of humour, rules of physics, blue skies and acid rain. Like sitting down at a table with a friend, Says You bounces from the banal to the absurd. It cuts a joke, it empties its wallet, it promises to get the tip next time, and when you smile, it smiles back.”
