NEWS: Luxembourg return with new EP after decade long gap

A mere ten years since their last release, pop noirists Luxembourg are back with a new song and video. ‘Youth‘ is the elegant and wistful first track from the London bands forcoming new EP, watch the video below.

Let them explain:

“How did this happen?” you might well ask…

We wrote the song in late 2016, shortly after that very encouraging reunion gig at the Islington.

It was mostly recorded at producer Mark Estall’s studio in London through the winter of 17-18, along with three other new songs.

The results of those sessions will come out as an EP on 8th May on all platforms.  (If you’re a reviewer, please drop us a line – we might just be able to give you a sneak preview of the EP.)

We intend to play a gig to launch the new songs, but there isn’t a date for this yet – logistics are a little more complicated for us now than they were in the 2000s.  But hey, that just gives you (and us!) more time to learn all the words beforehand, right?

We hope you like the song/video and can’t wait for you to hear the EP on 8th May.  More news on that soon.

Much love


A favourite of ours throughout the early 2000s, Luxembourg were a criminally underated(apart from by those in the know) five-piece from London. For most of their life, the lineup consisted of David Shah (lead singer), Rob Britton (guitar), Alex Potterill (keyboards), Jon Bacon (bass) and Steve Brummell (drums). Bassist Jon left the band at the end of 2006 and was replaced by David Barnett(The Boyfriends). Coming to prominance with a string of self released singles and appearances on the Angular records compilations (that also contained the likes of Art Brut, Bloc Party and The Long Blondes) and some memorable live shows in the capital. Their artful, synth dappled sound possessed an intelligence and wit that stood apart in the early naughties, and drew comparisons with Roxy Music and Pulp. Luxembourg went onto release a brilliant debut album entitled Front.The band broke up in 2008, coinciding with the release of their incomplete second album Last Holiday Before Divorce. They reunited in October 2016 to play a gig at the Islington in London.
