De Lux @ Birthdays – 6.19.14

De Lux at Birthdays Dalston - June 19 2014 De Lux at Birthdays Dalston - June 19 2014

My first venture out to see some live music in London… so of course I went to see a Los Angeles band. De Lux!

Upstairs at Birthdays in Dalston, we cheered on England as they kicked balls against Uruguay in the World Cup. Unfortunately, England was defeated and only a small number of the game watchers trickled downstairs after to watch De Lux on the basement stage. It really bums people out in London when England loses. Obvi.

I love De Lux. They are your friends’ garage band that plays disco. They are a love letter to the Talking Heads. Their music sounds like it could motivate Danielson to win the tournament in The Karate Kid.

Revisit their free EP (via Scion AV) from a way’s back, and check out De Lux’s recently released debut full-length album Voyage. My favorite track is “Better At Making Time,” which has a video that I’ve kindly posted for you below.

p.s. How cool is the name Birthdays for a bar? Everyone loves birthdays.
