The self-titled debut LP from Lucid Express is out available to stream/download in full today. The 10-track collection features previous single releases “Wellwave”, “Hollowers”, and “Hotel 65”, which were responsible for introducing listeners to the range of lush atmospheric moods that infuse this debut. Lucid Express is a collection of carefully crafted songs that explore young relationships, their love for music, and their struggle to carve their own place in the Hong Kong music scene.
Alongside this album release, the band also shares the video for opening track, “North Acton”. This visual was created by London-based artist Nick Scott (who also designed the album artwork) and delivers a psychedelic collage that transports the viewer across his hometown, while contrasting this journey against landscapes of oceans, mountains and clouds.
"Lucid Express is a slow-cooked album with elements of shoegaze and synthpop that simmer within its sound palette, sure to satisfy fans of the genre with its spacious arrangements and musical quotations of stalwarts like My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive." Read more at The Quietus
