The Manchester duo make a bold statement on new track, telling all they’re here to stay.
Luxury Death is the love-child of former Nai Harvest man Ben Thompson and his girlfriend Meg Williams and today they shared second track ‘Glue’ from their upcoming debut EP, following candid opener ‘Radiator Face’.

The EP is released on February 24 via PNKSLM Recordings and is available to preorder now on pink vinyl alongside an exclusive zine package made by the band, on the PNKSLM website.
‘Glue’ is evidently a track about two lovers and the connections and misconnections they feel towards one another, as indicated by the song’s title. The track opens with chiming Chinatown synths and pounding percussion, and flows beautifully into the fuzz-pop vocals of both Thompson and Williams. “You do it cause it hurts” rings the chorus ethereally, and the track ascends back into those lovely synths that you can’t help but dance like a moron to. The vocal delivery is rather similar to that of the last Nai Harvest singles ‘Jelly’ and ‘Just Like You’, Meg would have slotted perfectly into the angsty jingle pop of Nai. As the track goes on, we discover that the lovers are chained together, conjunctively holding each other close and pulling one another apart. The two conflicting perspectives find a sweet balance between the twisting n turning riffs and the ambient synths.
Luxury Death are ringing in the release of their EP with a celebratory hometown show at The Castle, Manchester on the 16th of March, their further upcoming shows are as follows:
