A romantic whirlwind in the vein of Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks, Luke Brennan re-images a timeless theme with the tenderness and lyrical finesse of Cass McCombs on his upcoming studio album ‘Lovers Leap.’
Life, Death, Love. None of these topics are off-limits for Luke Brennan. Imagining and re-imagining a timeless theme is what Luke consistently manages to do with empathy and a casual finesse.
Sometimes dense and sometimes weightless. Expansive daydream ballads are balanced with subtle long-form grooves. Lyrics-wise, philosophy gives way to humor; folk clichés show up in strange contexts; it’s a search for the extremely universal within the extremely personal.
On the forthcoming studio album, ‘Lovers Leap,’ Luke Brennan leaves home and ventures deep into the terra incognita of love. A quest for self-discovery in the heart of another, the narrator reflects on each stage of love’s journey; discovery, devotion, splendor, resolve, and finally loss.
Set for worldwide release in late 2017 via First Love, ‘Lovers Leap’ comes off the back of a fruitful 2016, recording and performing as a member of Big Smoke and Truly Holy, as well as the bands behind Fraser A Gorman and Leah Senior.
