Luboku - Forget
7 Aug 2019
Melbourne-based producer/singer-songwriter Luboku (Luis Kennett) delivers his soaring new single ‘Forget’, an emotively sophisticated slice of driving electronica. Boasting over a million collective streams, top 50 placements across iTunes, Shazam and Spotify Australia Viral charts, as well as the badge of triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, Luboku’s ability to characterise vivid instrumental flourishes, rolling beats and wistful vocals to create a dizzying impact is undeniable, making him one to watch in the local electronic scene.
This effervescent new single ‘Forget’ veers toward a warmer sound, in stark contrast with his often dark and melancholic style. Of the single's lyrical inspiration, Luboku explains, “It's about anxiety and fear, which I find to be recurring obstacles and that I'm sure many others may relate to…So writing about that experience is quite true to me personally. I like the analogy of throwing your thoughts into the waves of the ocean, letting them pass, and hopefully gaining some clarity through that process." Instrumentally, Luboku describes Forget as pushing his trademark electronic elements toward a more acoustic space, “It’s a little bit DARKSIDE, Caribou and even elements Tycho.”
Off the back of touring Australia and New Zealand with producer/singer-songwriter, BAYNK, Luboku has recently been locked in to showcase at Australia’s biggest annual music industry event, BIGSOUND, before taking off for a national run of shows with New Zealand collective, LEISURE. There’s no doubt that this accomplished, multifaceted artist is set to soar, with many more exciting musical creations already underway and slated for release later this year.
