Russell Louder - Humor [LP]
Cat. no: LLR0127LP
Release Date: 26th February 2021
Russell Louder (they/them) is a trans artist originally from Prince Edward Island, now based in Montreal.
They make electro-pop that’s carried by a powerful clear voice reminiscent of Florence and the Machine, London Grammar, Austra, Eurythmics or La Roux. Their voice, with its raw and brilliant clarity, pierces us, touches us, no matter where we come from or how old we are. With authenticity and strength his melodies speak to us, lift us up, take us by the hand.
They deliver an electronic music that’s both cerebral and danceable, powerful and vulnerable, draped in complex atmospheres. In a veil of icy sounds and majestic synthesizers, their voice unfolds to dizzying heights, as if to call for hope and reunion. This deeply human artist loves contact with the public and immerses themselves in it.
They say: “I make music for Dancing and Crying” and this takes on its full meaning during a Russell Louder concert. While the music is sometimes danceable, the lyrics are thought-provoking and highlight Russell’s talent as a storyteller. Each song on this album is the musical embodiment of the real or fictional characters that populate their imagination.
