LÜME's sound expands into an infinite dreamscape twisting and folding through a vast matrix of possible meanings and perceptions that are left for the listener to interpret.
The ambiguity in lyrical meaning is intentional according to Jeremy Ravezzani (Vox, Keys), "I like to put effects on my voice to slightly hide what is being said in some parts. That way, you can lose yourself in what is being created and not necessarily in what is being sung."
From the Detroit area, LÜME was envisioned out of the ashes of their previous project, In Cloud Orbit. The band went from a quartet to a duo but has managed to maintain their big sound.
"After ICO, it was like, we're not stopping because this is what we do," Jeremy Ravezzani explains. Despite what may have been a crippling blow to lesser artists, Lüme turned the shake up into an opportunity to reset and tap into new creative energies. "Making new stuff is easier," says Clay Aggas (drums&production).
Trimming down to a duo is not without its challenges according to Ravezzani, "As far as performing, that's actually been super tough on me because I'm used to being super loose. Now I'm playing bass notes and playing keyboards. A lot of times I'm zoning out in my brain and thinking of high notes, and when I'm supposed to be going and switching to the bass notes while also singing the right melody and when to breathe and saying the right words and also changing and holding sustain pedals. I feel like I'm not there, I'm just trying to focus on what's going on."
Despite the new challenges they have adapted to the new format, Ravezzani says, "I feel like I'm finally able to tread water in it, and now it's the medium in which I express myself."
LÜME's most recent project is more contained and focused than before. While many of the songs have a denser feel to them, their philosophy is still the same. They remain true to the core values of creating purposeful art that interrogates the existential dilemmas faced by all who are on a path of self discovery and meaning amidst a world of chaos, turmoil and distraction.
Ravezzani explains in his own words the philosophy of their artistic vision: "My inspiration is my spirituality and constant endeavor to get through the layers of being a human being and remember that I am an infinite conscious frequency. I am practicing the art of transforming myself through self-awareness. These thoughts and practices are what I personify through my music. I use the battle, the ego wages on our pure soul as material to almost transmute the turmoil within into music...In my belief that everything is just flowing through different levels of frequency and vibration and the music that I create is also creating a frequency and its own vibration, I can use this to heighten my connection to something greater, something beyond me."
Aggas sums it up more succinctly, "To me I believe he is just trying to transmit life."
