Luboku Delivers Thumping New Single 'Circles'
Australian electronic music wunderkind LUBOKU is pushing back into outer space with his latest single ‘CIRCLES’, out August 18th via etcetc Music. LUBOKU has also announced the release of his next EP entitled, “SPACE WALK” – a sonic journey through his cosmos – out Friday, October 30.
Like almost all of us, 2020 has been a year of introspection and staying put for LUBOKU. Speaking about his latest single, LUBOKU shares – “Circles is about feeling stuck in motion, unable to work out whether to move forward or back. I found myself overcome with indecision during the early stages of lockdown; I think a lot of those feelings are reflected in the lyrics of this one.”
Since releasing his highly successful single ‘Without You’ which hit #46 on the Australian Shazam chart and gained him the title of triple j Unearthed’s Feature Artist, it’s been a whirlwind couple of years for electronic up-and-comer LUBOKU. On top of this, he was hand-picked to support the likes of What So Not, Petit Biscuit, Willaris. K, LEISURE, Kilter, BAYNK – criss-crossing his way across Australia and New Zealand for the better part of 2019. LUBOKU has also showcased at key Australian music industry events including BIGSOUND 2019, Electronic Music Conference and CHANGES, in his hometown of Melbourne.
Luboku has been busy in the recording studio during this unusual year of distanced isolation. Today he confirms that his next body of work, “SPACE WALK” will be released on October 30. The work is a comment on how unjust the idea is of progress for progress sake. How damaging it is to always be wanting more, using humankind’s pursuit of space exploration as the basis for its otherworldly tones and sci-fi production.
