Since the release of their debut EP, the extraterrestrial synthpop duo Lucifer’s Dream have worked hard to put themselves on the map, both IRL and URL. Following the success of ‘Remember‘, they are now back with a video for another track from the EP.
Where ‘Remember’ was reflexive and melancholic, ‘Elixir of Isis’ has a hint of passionate energy and desire, breathing especially in the beginning of the track, that, I think consciously, almost sounds like the buildup for towards a catchy radiopop hook. But instead of delivering predictable pleasure, the track dissolves into a wavier, more melancholic and indeterminate vibe. Reality, or meeting your crush, is always different from expectation, full of confusion and conflicting emotions. At the end, the insecure atmosphere melts down into something more cute and playful, accentuated by the video and the almost dembow-like drum pattern. It may be because I can relate to it so well right now but I can’t help but putting the song on repeat.
