San Fermin: “Daedalus (What We Have)”
It’s pronounced SAN fur-MEEN. And it’s the pet project of Brooklyn-based composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone, a recent graduate of Yale where he studied composition. Taking his training in ‘classical’ music, the upcoming self-titled album under his bandonym is sure to be lush, sophisticated, and expansive. After the groups’ debut single/video “Sonsick,” we now get our second glimpse at the album, in the slower and moodier “Daedalus (What We Have)”. Taking cues from Antony and the Johnsons, Lambchop, and other similar artists, the song is strung together with warm brass, melancholic vocals, and a sparse arrangement. The low male vocals are supplied here by fellow musician Allen Tate while the girls of Lucius chime in for the hook.
San Fermin is set to be released Sept. 17th via Downtown Records.
