Lucid Express – Lime (Elliott Frazier Remix) [Listen]

Finally news about this band!!
Today the Hong Kong dream pop group Lucid Express dropped the Elliott Frazier remix of Lime.
The leading track is taken from their upcoming EP re-issue of Floret when the band was formerly named THUD which comes out on October 21st, 2022 via Kanine Records.
This remix version brings an high energetic shoegaze dreamy alterna-pop vibe.

About the track:
On Elliott Frazier’s “Lime” remix the EP’s opening track receives an extra layer of grit with the bass dialed up into an insistent warm crunch and the original ambient guitar textures removed leaving singer and vocalist Kim’s vocals strikingly exposed in the verses.
An effect that creates a fragility ripe for shattering as the chorus hook bursts open.

Long before Lucid Express released their eponymous debut album, the same five musicians created their first recordings together as Thud and released the 5-track digital EP Floret which came out on 2015.
This record made an instant splash amongst local music lovers and the band were soon being covered by correspondents for international entertainment publications including Time Out and NME, as well as being invited to support heavy-hitters such as Nothing, The Cribs and Beach Fossils.

However, the years that followed were a tumultuous time, both personally and politically.
In those years the band describe a depression setting in as Hong Kong’s democratic future began to look uncertain, and at times downright hopeless, with pro-democracy protests ruthlessly cracked down on by the state.
It was in this environment and its scenes of tear-gassed and beaten protesters serving as a backdrop to the group’s inception and young growth. Add to this an increase in politically-targeted arrests, and death threats openly delivered from government officials and it is understandable how this oppressive weight infiltrated most aspects of everyday life in the region. At some point, this depression spread to the music scene and amongst shows being canceled, and releases stalled, Floret quietly slipped offline.
