Now the second single, ‘Revolver’ is available offering a dark and yet uplifting tale of being stuck in a relationship or cycle that one feels desperate to escape, over a synth-based sound palette. The video is the 3rd in a series from Lui, and the story when put together makes a dark version of a classic fairytale.
The chorus tries to make the argument “we’re not damned to revolve around,” while the rebuttal continues to highlight the trials and tribulations associated with love.
Viewers are also reunited with the mysterious characters introduced in the “5000 Miles” music video. The alternative pop/rock tone of “Revolver” intensifies the drama unfolding in the Christoph Varga directed visual. LUI narrates with smooth, husky vocal melodies as viewers slowly connect the dots to previous chapters of the storyline.
This single highlights LUI’s creative depth. His genre blending style earned him a mention as one of Lemonade Magazine’s Breakout Artists for 2018 - http://www.lemonademagazine.net/featured/lemonades-breakout-artists-2018/. His first single “5000 Miles” was featured in multiple US Spotify playlists such as Young & Free, Viral Hits, USA Top 50, and New Music Friday.
