Sophe Lux: Hungry Ghost

Sophe Lux's Hungry Ghost is a two song EP that begins with a rhythmic reference to Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, segues into a saucy 70's glam stop, and then ascends into the (rock) operatic heavens through creeping harmonies the likes of Switchblade Symphony and Cocteau twins. Watch the band as they prepare to record while listening to David Byrne and Brian Eno's classic collaboration, My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, which the Luxes list as a major inspiration.
