Say Lou Lou announce that their debut album ‘Lucid Dreaming’ will be released through Columbia Records on February 2nd 2015. This will be preceded by their brand new single ‘Games For Girls’, a thrilling collaboration with fellow-Scandi producer Lindstrøm, released on October 13th 2014.
Destined to tear up dancefloors across Europe and beyond this summer, ‘Games For Girls’ is an addictive slice of contemporary electro-disco, delivered with the effortless panache that we have come to expect from twin sisters Miranda and Elektra who formed Say Lou Lou just two years ago. With Lindstrøm at the production helm they have come together to create a joyous dancefloor smash that sits with the very best of the electronic music to have come out of Scandinavia in recent years.
Following it’s debut on Pitchfork, ‘Games For Girls’ has attracted critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic with Stereogum saying “The combination is a powerful one. Lindstrøm’s production is typically earthshaking, but Say Lou Lou have given it a playful double-dutch melody, and it all just works together.” Meanwhile DIY described the track as “Disco all over, a foot-stomping, glitter-doused, twinkling tour de force.”
The track will come with brilliant mixes by Alex Metric and a very special video shot in Los Angeles.
Taken from their debut album ‘Lucid Dreaming’ due for release February 2nd 2015, ‘Games for Girls’ is a step on from the acclaimed tracks "Maybe You", “Julian”, ‘Better in the Dark’ and ‘Everything We Touch’ that the band have put out over the last 18 months garnering critical acclaim and a growing worldwide fanbase in the process. ‘Lucid Dreaming’ has been written by the band and recorded over the last 12 months in London, Stockholm and Los Angeles.
