The follow-up to 2015’s exultant and explosive LP Bones, Brighter Wounds finds Son Lux transformed all over again. This fifth album marks another fundamental shift as Lott leaves universal themes behind to write from a personal perspective: while making these songs, he became a father and lost a family member to cancer. Days of “firsts” were also days of “lasts,” and the normal fears of first-time parenthood were compounded by a frightening new reality — Lott’s son was born shortly after Election Day 2016. These songs draw on all of that: warm reflections of a fading past, the pain of still-present loss, and a mix of anxiety and hope for a future promised to none.
The surreal and cryptic “All Directions” video draws on mythological and religious themes to present a modern-day tragedy of psychosis, incorporating the visual motif of severed hands used throughout the artwork and roll-out of Brighter Wounds, as well as its predecessor EP, 2017’s ‘Remedy’. The video stars Emmy Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black, Stronger) and actor Tom Cullen (Black Mirror, Downton Abbey), with cinematography by Steve Yedlin (Star Wars: The Last Jedi). It was directed by frequent collaborator Nathan Johnson, and produced by Made Shop in conjunction with RocketJump. (source)
