COOL times ahead for Keighley musician Jordan Hodson and fellow members of electronic band Loux.

The Leeds three-piece will headline a gig at Leeds Oporto on April 22 to launch their latest single Cool, two days after its official release.

The single follows the band’s debut, Meet Me Halfway, which following its release last November saw the band gain coverage on both press and radio.

Motley Magazine said Meet Me Halfway put the trio firmly under the banner of ‘Dream Pop’ with a sound reminiscent of Foals.

Cool is partly inspired by the bestselling novel Gone Girl and the concept of so-called ‘cool girls’ who go along with what men demand of them with little concern for themselves.

A band spokesman said: “Jordan has approached the subject by relating an uncomfortable, personal situation for her with a withering sarcasm that defiantly determines she is not one of those women.

“The song itself – a sassy, dancey, slightly moody amalgam of 90s pop synths and hooks – continues the band’s carefully subtle style of sound textures, effects-laden guitars, minimal yet warm drum rhythms and hypnotic vocals.”

Synth player, vocalist and lyricist Jordan, guitarist Chris Milnes and drummer Ali Wells met while studying at Leeds College of Music, and played their first show last July.

The following day they supported Alt-J, Orbital and Pixies at the Blue Dot Festival at Jodrell Bank.

Leeds Living said: “This group could not be any newer to the Leeds music scene, yet they play with an asserted confidence that exudes more and more with every song.”
