Luboku - Solar Flare
18 Jan 2019
producer/songwriter Luboku today
delivers ‘Solar Flare’, an intricate and emotive slice of electronica. A track
that could just as easily soundtrack an afternoon festival set as an
underground club at dawn, ‘Solar Flare’ showcases Luboku’s ability to create
swirling soundscapes, crafted into tracks that are both uplifting and
melancholic. The release date for ‘Solar Flare’ has been championed in part by
people hearing it in Luboku’s live sets and asking for its release.
Reflecting on ‘Solar Flare’, Luboku says; “Over the past few months I've made Solar Flare a big part of my live set - linking it to one of my singles from last year, 'Without You'. After my last few shows I kept getting hit up by fans online asking about this track, so it felt right to put this one out right before my upcoming EP tour (which starts later this month!). Solar Flare feels like the perfect mid-point between what's come and what's coming next in the project, while its namesake speaks to the raw, emotive energy I felt when creating it.”
Over the past year, Luboku has quickly risen to become one of the most unique up-and-coming talents Australia possesses. Having introduced himself with a run of stand-out singles and the release of his debut solo EP The Surface in November, Luboku has established a body of work that showcases his versatile approach to songwriting; blending electronic, pop and RnB soundscapes along the way.
Singles from The Surface EP have seen support from around the world, with the likes of XLR8R, Indie Shuffle, EDM.com and This Song Is Sick giving it their tick of approval. 2018 also saw Luboku come into his own as a live force, supporting the likes of Willaris K., What So Not and Petit Biscuit, ahead of making his debut festival appearance at Let Them Eat Cake this January.
Catch Luboku live this month as he sets out on his debut solo tour, beginning in Sydney on January 31, before hitting the NSW Central Coast, Melbourne and Newcastle, celebrating the release of his debut solo EP release The Surface.
