Luscious Apparatus blends cinematic soundscapes, synths, shoegaze textures, and syncopated percussion, to create a sound best described as Electrogaze or Noir Pop. Founded by Jack Norton as a studio project in 2019, the Portland, OR based act evolved during the great plague of the early 2020s with the arrival of Sandi Leeper on vocals. Catherine Hukle, a guitarist from Seattle, moved to Portland, providing the band's signature walls of sound. Daniel Henderson joined on drums in 2021. All members are active in writing and producing for Luscious Apparatus.
Luscious Apparatus' roots are spread wide throughout the post-90's post-punk scenes. They incorporate everything from goth and industrial to indie rock, electronica, and trip-hop. Influences are broad: from Nine Inch Nails to Garbage. Joy Division to Massive Attack. Gary Numan to My Bloody Valentine. Frontline Assembly and Delerium.
Bricks & Bones releases on Bandcamp and all streaming platforms on May 27, 2022. It is the follow up to Luscious Apparatus' first single, Infiltrate, and the band‘s cover of Lions, which appeared on the Coitus Interruptus compilation, "The Work of Sinners, The Work of Saints (A Tribute to Love & Rockets And Tones On Tail)" in April 2022. Luscious Apparatus is scheduled to perform in support of Curse Mackey at the Coffin Cub (Portland, OR) on July 2nd, and at the Star Theater on July 24th (Portland, OR.)
