Portland-based experimental pop-rock duo AU (Luke Wyland and Dana Valatka) have announced new U.S. tour dates in support of their third album Both Lights, which was released in April on Hometapes. AU will be performing with Zammuto on Nov. 3rd at The Independent in San Francisco.
Both Lights is considered to be AU's landmark album, breaking into the indie-rock spotlight with what NME called their "first true masterpiece." The album's excellent single "Solid Gold" caught the attention of Deerhoof, who recently remixed the track. The remix will see an official release later this month by Portland bar Dig A Pony in a limited edition leather-bound 7" split with Portland's Pure Bathing Culture. AU has also shared a new video for Both Lights highlight "OJ," directed by Takafumi Tsuchiya. Watch the video below.
