Long before bands like The XX were lulling crowds into alt-rock bliss, Autolux was pushing shoe-gazing rock and roll into experimental waters. Since their inception in 2000, the trio combines rolling instrumentals with ethereal vocals to create a sound that’s both haunting and hypnotic. Front man Eugene Goreshter’s choir-boy vocals are pleasingly offset by guitarist Greg Edwards, who often tilts the group’s direction into mellow prog-rock territory. Drummer Carla Azar provides depth beyond her drumming abilities, thanks to her dreamy voice and magnetic stage presence. Autolux hits the Constellation Room this Wednesday during a string of smaller venue dates before traveling to Canada to open for Nine Inch Nails.
