Pop quiz: What do Joseph Campbell, Blade Runner and Trent Reznor have in common?
Answer: The L.A. synth-pop quartet LEX.
“A lot of our inspiration comes from movies such as Blade Runner, The Neverending Story and Labyrinth,” bandmember Leah Chrisholm tells EW via email. Chrisholm grew up in Eugene.
LEX is touring in support of their debut self-titled release produced by Peter Franco, who also worked on the last two Daft Punk records. The band describes its sound as “fantasy synth.”
