About this item

L.A.’s De Lux are a post-disco, dance-punk DIY duo that sound like they could have come out of 1979 or 1982 just as easily as the present.

"Love Is Hard Work" is a continuous 29 minute recording and something that Sean Guering from De Lux has been wanting to make for a while…'Before De Lux, I used to write long songs, but never really finish them. Written and recorded in mid-2021 for two months, it felt like a breeze to make "Love Is Hard Work" because I had been thinking and talking about it for so long. Influenced by a lot of artists from '79-'82, like Peter Gordon, Electric Mind, Evans Pyramid or Dizzy K, the track is intended to feel like a continuous flow of dance music. Instead of a stream of consciousness in lyricism, this is more of a stream of consciousness in instrumentation and song writing; where ideas flow from one to the other without too much thought.'

Unapoletically joyous and bountiful throughout, it ventures through electro-disco, boogie and synth-pop moods with an assured optimism and radiance. Sunny melodies, yearnful vox, powerful drums - it's got everything you need to keep you powered up whehter listening in the car, at home or in the club. An adventerous prospect executed with a sincere love for all forms of dance music.
