Luxembourg has a population of under half a million people. It’s football players are generally referred to more in regards to their full-time jobs as postmen and builders rather than their skill on the pitch. It’s fame stretches so far as to people getting it confused with fellow minnow Lichtenstein. But regardless of this, it seems as though the country might have played host to the incubation of one of the most exciting electronic acts in the world at the moment.
Springing up almost without warning is Sun Glitters, coming straight in with 9 track album ‘everything could be fine’, a 30 minute meander through the hazy, technicolour world of modern, downtempo electro. Brushing on chillwave without really committing to it’s oversubscribed aesthetic, this is a sound more reminiscent of the glowing collection of big beats and ephemera that make Star Slinger such an exciting prospect, drawing on the more subdued aspects of dubstep as an inspiration, too. That this could’ve been hiding without being picked up by someone is almost unthinkable – but it seems that far from having to play gigs in licensed coffee outlets and hiding behind masks for publicity shots, the real way to keep yourself unknown is to hide out in the depths of Benelux and make joyfully analogue sounding odes on your downmarket laptop.
