Prepare to get smacked in the face by Luxe Trader’s new video for Are You Serious?

There’s no other artist currently making the rounds quite like Luxe Trader. The Perth-based artist belts out a concoction of noises that feel simultaneously chaotic and considered—it’s a complete assault of sound, but we guarantee you’ll quickly get hooked.

With the release of his new video for Are You Serious?, he continues to establish himself as one of Aussie music’s most unique and exciting emerging acts. If you’re not already across this name, we strongly recommend you change that now.

On his new video for Are You Serious?, Perth-based artist Luxe Trader presents a blistering slab of electronic-punk chaos.

Throughout the new single, Luxe Trader stomps through a blistering blend of electronica, punk, and prog to craft a sound completely his own. With thunderous drum beats, crunching guitars, and brutal synth stabs, Are You Serious? is a complete smack in the face. We never knew such a thing could feel so good.

As the track progresses, so too does a real sense of chaos. Across its sub-three-minute run-time, the song pulls in myriad directions—it never sits in one place for too long. This, however, is the song’s most captivating quality.

By the time Are You Serious? reaches its conclusion, you’ll have been roped in completely by Luxe Trader’s brutal sounds.

These are still relatively early days for this Perth artist, but judging by everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes. Here’s hoping we won’t have to wait long to hear what he delivers next.

In the meantime, do yourself a favour and watch the new video Are You Serious? above.
