I had a whole list of artists I was going to cover this week but, alas, I got distracted. It’s easy to let things slide when this isn’t your primary profession and is squeezed in with work, play, talking to my girlfriend and eating enough to not starve.
So, to make up for it, I’ll be covering two tracks today in two separate posts. Opening the batting is Lomelda‘s new single Interstate Visions taken from the upcoming album Thx which is due to be released September 8th on Double Double Whammy.
Interstate Visions as a track reminds me of some romantic former country kid, harnessing that hope and naivety after a moment of melancholy in their post-urban adventure. Lomelda channels bands like Speedy Ortiz along in their climbing, meandering structures in which guitars ebb and flow like the road beneath your car’s tyres and singer Hannah Read’s refrain opens up the rawness of an open road.
I like it.
