If R&B had been conceived in the bunker beneath Hamburg’s Central Station, the resultant bump and grind might be awash with same seductive ambience of Luka’s debut EP.
Lead track Quiet Eyes features the beguiling Belgian singer-songwriter Love Like Birds. ‘My bones won’t touch the ground,’ she confides, her sultry delivery twisted by Luka’s star-gazing synths, gates and loops.
His debut release The Nest EP, is out on July 14th. Trickling through a pulsing web of reverberating harmonies and clattering percussion, these are pop tunes of supreme mechanisation imbued with the spirit of a joyful heart and soul.
With remixes for James Blake, DIIV and Zoo Kid already tucked under his stylistic belt, stages shared with SOHN, Dauwd and Chet Faker plus a festival debut at MELT 2013, Luka is poised to emerge from his well chiseled cocoon.
The Nest EP is a swirling sonic contortion of the monochrome arthouse aesthetic displayed on his wildly popular ‘Inside The Nest’ tumblr. Launched earlier this year, it already has 150,000 followers.
