AU premieres new single “Get Alive,” launches tour & announces SXSW schedule

STREAM: “Get Alive”

VIDEO: Into The Woods Session -“Solid Gold”

Portland, OR shook this past Saturday. To celebrate the impending release of AU’s anticipated third album Both Lights, core members Luke Wyland and Dana Valatka invited a team of players to construct a jaw-dropping set and a true manifestation of the album and its wild transcendence. Today you can close your eyes and see the light brighten: we’re sharing a new single from the album, the infinite stairway “Get Alive”.

Like a storm front, AU’s tour begins in the west and stops for a few days in Texas. Check out AU’s US tour dates below, including a special Brooklyn show on the east coast with labelmates Leverage Models! We’re also revealing the full details of AU’s SXSW performances.
Three years seems like a flash when you consider the complexity and overall texture of Both Lights. Building a multi-dimensional musical creature is less of a feat within the forgiving walls of a studio, this much is true. Saturday proved that AU is just as innovative before a live audience, and perhaps more synchronized than we previously imagined. From crashing highs like “OJ” to somber and delicate lows like “Crazy Idol,” Both Lights is a dazzling sonic portrait, twice as vivid live. – Mark Stock, Willamette Week, on AU’s 3/3/12 show in Portland
