about

A picture-perfect collection of echo-drenched space-age pop songs, Too Beautiful to Work buzzes and pops into retro-futurist sonic bliss. From the vintage effects crackling throughout Tiny Head to the cerebral repetition found on the title track, The Luyas’ smart, heady pop sounds vital and modern, yet utterly timeless.

The Luyas enlisted the help of many friends on Too Beautiful to Work, many of whom happen to double as world-class musicians. Owen Pallett played the violin and provided orchestral arrangements. Colin Stetson added saxophone and clarinet. Sarah Neufeld (who plays in Arcade Fire) also played violin. John Marshman added some cello, Daniel Romano played the bass, Lisa Chisholm brought the bassoon and Leonie Wall played the flute. Too Beautiful to Work was produced with Jeff McMurrich (Sandro Perri, Owen Pallett, Constantines) at his 6 Nassau studio.
