Talking about the video, Luke explains, “‘Working with Oska Zaky and Harry Steele on this music video was such a supreme honour. Their talent and ideas were so absolutely synchronous with what the song needed. We had a few meetings, we listened to the album and I went in on the lyrics, gave them the low down behind the whole vision, we dug in line by line and I gave them what the significance is to me, and beyond that, they planned and arranged and coordinated everything. Collectively I feel we just conjured a space where magic was allowed to happen and, there were so many little unprecedented, symbolic, coincidences that tie into the music, beyond what I could have envisioned – and, I can only put that down, to finding creative kindred spirits – that trust that people can share: to have a plan but, deviate when the flow takes hold. That flexibility, assured confidence in one’s craft. That is what sets these guys apart I believe and I would be honoured to work with them again.”
In A Moment Just Like This One is the third single to be taken from Luke’s upcoming album The Banquet. The creation of the album was a cathartic process for Luke; it’s about inviting demons to the table, breaking bread with them and making peace. Throughout The Banquet, Luke takes the listener on a journey of self-reflection and understanding, not wavering at the fears of sharing his vulnerable side and the darkness that comes with it. Oozing with idiosyncratically alluring twists and turns, The Banquet combines folk-rock and baroque-pop sensibilities in order to create a sound that is undeniably unique as a result. From the warm, intimate tones of Baby it’s okay, I’m here, wake up, to the uplifting, anthemic chimes of Happy to be Here (I might die tomorrow), Luke’s effortlessly rich vibrato is at the forefront, allowing his poetic lyricism to shine through.
Luke is graduating from his ‘Folk Boy’ era and entering a new phase of his journey; unafraid to break formula and push the frontiers of his own creativity. Luke has previously received support from the likes of NPR, Clash, The Line of Best Fit, Pop Matters and BBC 6Music’s Cerys Matthews to name a few.
Luke’s upcoming album The Banquet is due for release on 24th June 2022 via AntiFragile Music.
