I’m sure we can all agree that our world’s have been turned upside down recently, Lui Krieg and the Alchemysts of Sound are here to send your head spinning with their new single ‘Upside Down’, giving 80s rock vibes that reflect how we’re all feeling at the moment.
Lui is a keen traveller and throughout his life he’s journeyed from his homeland of Germany to South-East Asia, Africa, South America and finally to Glastonbury, The Isle of Avalon, where he now calls home. On his travels, he experienced a taste of fame as he is often confused for legendary Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant. His adventures have led to him pursing his true passion in life, rock music alongside drummer and producer Paul, guitarist Kit and supporting vocalist Zoe.
Fitting with the theme of the track, Lui came up with the concept while, quite literally, upside down! When asked about his inspiration, he said:
“I went to Tulum, Mexico for three months last winter to prepare myself physically and mentally for the Lui Rocks campaign! One afternoon on the beach I was doing a headstand as part of my yoga practice and as I was standing on my head looking out to the beach I received the words, ” this world is upside down, let us turn it around”. When I sent a picture of me doing a headstand to my producer, Paul Foss, he replied that this is a great idea for a great song that reflects the state of the planet at this moment in time! A new song was born!”
