Luluc Releases Single 'Emerald City' And Announce Independent Album 'Dreamboat'

Aussie Electro-Folk duo Luluc, who are based in Brooklyn, have surprise released a new single "Emerald City" and have announced a big development for them, a fully independent album called Dreamboat, which has been Produced by Aaron Dessner.

Previously, the band has usually released via Sub Pop, but they are taking a different direction with Dreamboat. 

Zoe Randell started working on Dreamboat in the "before times" in New York City and we find that energy in "Emerald City". Randell flew to Berlin, with Steve Hassett, invited by producer/collaborator Aaron Dessner (The National) for the PEOPLE festival and they, along with other kindred musicians, all worked on this album. Performers with Arcade Fire, yMusic, The National, So Percussion and more all contributed to the album's recordings, made at PEOPLE's Berlin studio. 

Luluc recorded the album in Berlin and their Brooklyn, NY, studio. They mixed it in isolation on the coast outside of Melbourne, Australia, where they are seeing out the pandemic.

Guest musicians include: in Berlin, Aaron Dessner (The National), Drummers JT Bates (Bon Iver), Jason Treuting (So Percussion), CJ Camerieri (yMusic) on Trumpet and then, in Brooklyn,  with saxophonist Stuart Bogie (Arcade Fire), NY jazzers Dalton Harts (drums) and Jackson FitzGerald (guitars).
