The Luyas
Biography Tour Dates Contact Info

Montreal’s The Luyas return with the release of ‘Says You’, the first new recordings since their 2012 album, ‘Animator’. 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 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. Listen to it and see if you like it.
