Shoegaze vets Lush have reunited for the just-announced EP Blind Spot, out April 22, and a US tour.
This is the first new music from the English band since the 1996 single “500 (Shake Baby Shake).” Last year, the group released the box set Chorus, which you can take a closer look at over here.
Lush recorded Blind Spot las summer with producers Daniel Hunt of Ladytron and Jim Abbiss. The video for the first track “Out of Control” was directed by Mark Anderson.
Of the EP, Lush’s Miki Berenyi wrote:
“It certainly took some time to set up, but once we were in the studio, everything came together incredibly quickly. It was great fun! It’s been a long time since I’ve written Lush lyrics, and I realised early on with this EP that what I wrote about then is not what I feel comfortable writing about now. My perspective, and what is close to my heart, has changed, and I think that’s conveyed in the songs.”
