Son Lux | Whispering | Single Review
This is Meru
Rating: Thumbs Down
Released in the latter half of March, Son Lux debuted their second single off their upcoming sixth record. The single “Whispering” begins with a subtle, relaxed piano progression and faint, breezy vocals. As the track progresses, it becomes apparent that the group is most well-known for their production value rather than lyrical quality. The entirety of the five-minute-long track amounts to two unique sections of lyrics, continuously repeated over the course of the song. Meanwhile, the track continues to peculiarly build in the background until it reaches a plateau of repetition complementary to the lyrics. While “Whispering” has potential as an intriguing single, the monotony of the track leaves it dull and mundane.
