Actor Luke Eisner, put on the radar by hit TV show Tall Girl, marches to the beat of his own drum. Deviating from the typical actor pipeline, he’s forging his own path in the music industry with the help of multi-instrumentalist artist Gus Ross. With two heads being better than one, this new album proves that together they are an unstoppable force.
Landing a spot on Spotify’s ‘Rock Rotation’ playlist, the pair have amassed over 2 million weekly streams on the platform – no easy feat. It’s without a doubt due to their laid-bare lyrics fortified by crescendoing, dynamic guitars. This new release is accompanied by a myriad of visuals, which borrow the unfiltered energy of a play. The artist reflects, “I became obsessed with making a concept record into a play. The decision to make “Happy Never After: the play” all shot in one takes came from when I was filming the show “Family Reunion”. We taped it in front of a live audience. I loved that style of working and I think one takes are so beautiful to the eye!”
In an age of unattainable perfection, vulnerable rawness is a breath of fresh air. “Hush Now” embodies this unapologetic candidness – which is brought to the surface by distorted vocals, stacked musical elements and layered harmonies. Not to mention, a sweeping music video that reflects the dizzying pleasure of a punch-drunk party. This new release, and the string of visual accompaniments to come solidify VOILÀ’s trailblazing musical prowess.
