The Lürxx - Electronic Press Kit
Nature Warrior Rock - music that matters! With unusual, relevant lyrics, amazing hooks, rocking recorders and an experimental mindset the Lürxx create a positive and powerful soundtrack to the revolution we need to save our planet! The Lürxx are an anti-speciesist activist band with their roots in the mid-90s Hollywood glam punk scene and in Environmental Sciences. They use their music to ignite positive change and help people (re)connect with nature and their wild selves. Their positivity and a certain lightheartedness help people deal with eco-anxiety and energize the listeners into taking action! Reviewers highlight their high energy performances as well as their "passion and optimism" and lyrical "quirkiness". With recorders forming a key part of their sound, they bring in a unique element not usually heard in hard rock. Their musical versatility is notable: They sometimes perform with a full rock line-up, sometimes as an acoustic duo. After a guerrilla career in the 1990s, they are currently working on their next album which will be mixed and co-produced by James Michael (formerly of Sixx:A.M.).
Let us introduce ourselves!
The Lürxx play Nature Warrior Rock: philosophically rooted in anti-speciesism, projecting positive activism and promoting our oneness with nature, their music is energetic and unusual, sometimes performed with a full rock line-up, sometimes acoustic.
With recorder solos (!), vocals impassioned by unexpected and relevant lyrics, topped with face paint, the Lürxx showcase an experimental mindset and roots tapping into the protest songs of the 1960s and into 70s punk, when music was at the forefront of societal change. They are the powerful soundtrack to the revolution desperately needed to save our planet!
The Lürxx share the tribal calling for art and a certain musical weirdness with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the sense of purpose with Sixx:A.M., a rock band with a clear topic wheel and with meaningful lyrics that want to change peoples’ lives. The basis of their music is an earthy groove, comparable to early Aerosmith.
Xavi and Sabú have been together for 33 years (first love!), writing songs together since they were 13.
Upon their emigration to Hollywood in 1996, as 18 year old illegal immigrant high school drop-outs, they initially lived on the streets, like a scruffy guerrilla version of the Rock’n’Roll dream, and were eventually adopted by the remnants of the 80’s Sunset Strip glam rock scene.
After some years as full-time musicians, they returned to school and later to uni, studying Latin (Sabú & Xavi) and Environmental Sciences (Xavi). After a 22-year hiatus, they got the band back together in 2020 and are ready to change the world with their music! They are currently working on their new album "Second Chancers" which will be co-produced and mixed by James Michael of Sixx:A.M.

“Music for the Planet” es una celebración de la música rock hecha a mano y de la sencillez sin pretensiones.
El disco cuenta una historia de belleza y esperanza, de lucha y victoria, de amor y la increíble maravilla de la naturaleza." - Dequeruza, Argentinia
"They’re not afraid to tackle subjects that you don’t normally find in rock songs, and their dedication to numerous wildlife species and the man-made plights they face gets the message in the listener’s face. (...) “Part Of It All,” the disc’s closing track, does feel like they’re able to pull together all the stories told in the other songs and focus them into one laser-sharp point. (...) To tackle songs about eels, ducks and true environmental warriors, and not have them come off as preachy? Now that’s a challenge, and they rose to it very well." - Christopher Thelen, The Daily Vault
"The Lürxx undoubtedly have their own thing going [...], in everything from vocal tone to topic and [...] multi-layered arrangements. Rebels is a stunning opener, but it’s still merely a glimpse of the depth on display throughout Music For The Planet." - Stereo Stickman
