LUI HILL cites a wide range of musical influences Stevie Wonder to Frank Ocean, and from Steve Reich to Sohn, but credits his father’s wanderlust with having the greatest of all influences on him and his music. New single Ancient Dust has a well-travelled feel, that’s for sure.
Soulful vocals give the track a raw and emotive quality, causing the heart to ache with every word. As the song builds, it takes some of the sunny cadences of The Beach Boys and the languid sounds of classic American rock and applies a shimmering layer of airy , upbeat electronica.
Ancient Dust is a perfect summer singalong with its light feel and memorable chorus sure to stick in your mind after just one listen.
