Sound of Boston: SONG/VIDEO PREMIERE: LUHX – “MESS”

"When I talk about music that I really like, I often end up mentioning the ‘vibe.’ It’s hard to describe why a song has a great or particular vibe, but you just know it when you hear one. When I had the opportunity to hear the debut single from local act luhx, I instantly fell into a calm, contemplative, relaxed mood. The track, “Mess,” which is actually about a messy relationship (something not so relaxing), has an R&B feel to it and a sparse hip-hop beat over bright plucked strings and a variety of synths. Then, in comes a chopped up vocal line, that, while only singing one sentence, slowly reveals throughout the track what the whole line is."
