Curse Of Lono Releases A Breathtaking Album
A fantastic new album was just released from Curse Of Lono and it's got a deepening and cinematic pop sensibility that touches on so many sub genres and emotionally driven undertones its almost intimidating.
The People In Cars album has tons of outstanding instrumentation from 90's style beats to lap steel and other Americana elements that peel through into the atmosphere of some of these tracks as vocals are alluring and lyrics remain incredibly descriptive and passionately performed throughout the record's entire course.
These songs have a subtle anthemic tonality to them that feels warming and welcoming and the honesty behind these songs is refreshing and wonderful.
Tracks breathe and have life as they play on and most of the time the songs trigger memories to pop up in your head and it all feels good.
Guitars swim around and flow openly with experimental undertones and fill the air with textures.
The record almost feels like it could be a concept album but even if it's not, it has a connective value between the songs especially story telling wise.
It's in the way the words are phrased and laid out that helps these paint vivid pictures and inner monologues.
Most of the choruses on this record are gorgeous and addictive and it gives the feeling of bands like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at times as there is a certain edginess lurking just beneath the surface that shows face just enough to be noticed the right way.
There was certainly a lot that went into this album and it shows.
The record has character and a swagger of sorts that is different but still inviting and somewhat familiar.
People In Cars is like finding someone's diary and going through all 11 chapters of it.
You'll be surprised at the drive and cinematic power these songs boast and put out there.
You can feel from all of it and this is exactly what we need in music today. To be able to feel from it. Music should move you in a way. In any way. But it should move you all the same. You should be affected by it.
Curse of Lono has brought that back and we love this record for it.
