Lomelda Forever on 12" Vinyl
Lomelda is an art rock band from Waco, TX. Their sound features strong female vocals, loose spacey guitars, and complex emotional percussion. Lead by the songwriting of Hannah Read, the group creates music that is both accessible and exploratory. Textural tones from guitarist Andrew Hulett blend with Read's simple stylings to give width and depth to the music, while the dynamic drumming of Zach Daniel adds weight to the subtleties of the songs.
Their live show lifts and lowers and invites you to lean in close. Feel something. Be patient. Get together. Take a heavy breath. Remember when you found a photo of your grandpa, your dad's dad, the one you never met. He leans against the doorframe of the family cabin deep in the piney woods, a camera hanging around his neck, waiting to capture the kids' model rocket launch but instead being captured himself, all denim and swagger at age 36, a year before his death. It's gone – all of it. But you can still hold it in your hand. Or tear it up or burn it. Or frame it.
It's nostalgic, heavy, and personal. It's pop sensitive, soul drone, sentimental space rock. Lomelda's first full length album – Forever – documents a collection of some specific moments that seem to hold it all. In hindsight, of course. As inspired by geography and potamology, the album moves you from place to place and flows from song to song. Forever is set for release in the Fall of 2015 via Punctum Records.
