Hong Kong shoegaze 5-piece Lucid Express is excited to announce their signing to Brooklyn, New York’s, Kanine Records. Today, in anticipation of the July 16th release of their self-titled debut album, the band share their gently defiant single “Wellwave” and its hazy music video.
The track serves as a fitting introduction to the group and their home. Through a flood of warm synth pads, and bright guitar lines, the band deliver a confident refusal to heed the pressure to conform in their local music scene. Vocalist/synth player Kim meditates throughout on the lyrics “We’ll wave today, for you, we’ll disobey for sure.” The track is accompanied by a video shot on Tai Mo Shan, the tallest mountain in Hong Kong, and features a performance from the band intercut with candid scenes from the surroundings. The entire visual is given a nostalgic filter by being replayed and refilmed through the screen of an analog tv.
