Lux Lyall Shares Her New Alternative Rock Single “Draw Blood”

“Draw Blood” is the latest song to be taken from Lux Lyall’s forthcoming second album, Runaway Bride, and follows the release of the dramatic lead single ‘Bonesaw’ earlier this year. The darkly cinematic slasher horror alt-pop song also received a twisted ethereal remix from Jessica Winter.

She sings “Is it still love till he draws blood? / Is that when you finally had enough? / Everything you need just turns to dust / Baby when are you gonna give this up?” The poignant lyrics paint the painful reality of women who face abuse in relationships. The song is a first-hand account capturing the multitude of complex feelings and emotions found in these tragic circumstances.

Musically speaking, it has a 90’s alternative rock vibe with an upbeat tempo and a dark melody.

Runaway Bride will follow the release of Lux Lyall’s highly praised 2020 debut album VAMP, which received strong critical support from the likes of The Independent, The Line Of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, Wonderland and many more.

Lux was born and currently lives in London, however she was brought up in Cyprus where her Pakistani mom and half-Sri Lankan, half-Dutch dad moved for work when she was six weeks old. Lux grew up immersed in vintage American movies because that was all there was to watch. Proving highly influential to Lux, this film noir doused her creativity creating a dark and decadent musical world where her theatrical songs meld the glamorous nostalgia of Hollywood with modern, dark pop sensibilities, laced with an enchanting mystique.

I fell in love with music when I first picked up a guitar at age 8. When I played, my friends and family would smile and spill with joy over the music I played, even though it was never Grammy quality. While my music career never made it past high school, my love for music never waivered. I loved the feeling of bringing a smile to someone's face through music and wanted to keep that passion going. So, I took it upon myself to continue to support and promote artists by writing about their music. This way, I can support my personal passion for music and bring entertain and joy to others through music.  Outside my love for music, I do enjoy a good hike and being in the outdoors. My favorite place that I've hiked is in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I love to travel too. I've been to Costa Rica, Vancouver, BC, and England, but the best place by far is Germany on Oktoberfest. I liken that experience to being in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. I like a good book now and then, but I'm more of a streaming fiend. I live for crime docuseries on Netflix, veterinary shows on National Geographic, and re-watching Scrubs on Hulu.
