Los Angeles, CA
Inspired by the late-'70s and early-'80s era that birthed post-punk and post-disco -- and seemingly a fair portion of the like-minded DFA label roster, from LCD Soundsystem to Holy Ghost! -- De Lux is a duo consisting of Sean Guerin and Isaac Franco. Based in Los Angeles, the musicians debuted in late 2013 with a five-track EP released through a partnership with ScionAV. Led by "Better at Making Time," the EP also contained a remix by Visitors (aka Sal Principato of Liquid Liquid and Dennis Kane). In April 2014, De Lux released their debut album, Voyage, on Innovative Leisure. The set contained several new songs, along with "Better at Making Time" and another EP highlight, "Love Is a Phase." Just over a year later, the duo returned with Generation, a darker set of songs influenced by the music of ESG and Can and the uninhibited lyrics of Karen Finley.
