Lux Lisbon formed at Nottingham University where Stuart Rook and Charlotte Austen met as a would be Barrister and Chemist respectively, before moving to London where the now-5-piece craft sweeping, cinematic indie from their tag-team vocals, interwoven harmonies, and the influence of Dog is Dead, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen and Bloc Party.
The last 18 months has seen them record several BBC Introducing live sessions (including for for Tom Robinson at BBC 6 Music and Bethan Elfyn at BBC Wales) and pick up support from Billy Bragg, John Kennedy, Stewart Lee, Chris Hawkins at BBC6 Music as well as The Fly and Word Magazines. Live highlights have included slots at Bestival, Y Not, Hyde Park during the Olympics, Camden Crawl, Dot To Dot as well as slots supporting the mighty To Kill and King and Tom Robinson himself.
In 2013, Lux Lisbon have released the 4 track ‘Get Some Scars EP’ and the download only single ‘Demons You Show’. All of these tracks are featured in ambitious and varied promo videos, featuring (amongst other things) an 8-bit zombie apocalypse, several dancing Boris Johnsons, and an almighty homage to Wes Anderson.
Across their 2 Uk tours in 2013, Lux Lisbon have hit the stage with a high-energy show complete with an ambitious visual projection display that their “epic widescreen indie-rock” (The Fly) sound demands.
