LOMELDA ANNOUNCES NEW FULL LENGTH ALBUM “HANNAH”
OUT 4TH SEPTEMBER VIA DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY
Lomelda has announced her new album, Hannah, with a video for its expansive lead single “Wonder.”
“Wonder is about working hard,” said Lomelda’s Hannah Read. “It is my most fun song to play. And I got to play drums on it, so it’s my favorite Lom song forever. May it motivate you to move and smash like it does me.”
There’s something so special with Lomelda– with the vocal ability of this artist, something so profound is present. Lomelda is an artist you can easily adore, this musician has perfected the craft of connecting with their audience and truly moving them. “Wonder” resonates with affection, it hits a note which exudes an expressive emotional tone. The repetitive lyrics of the track just hit home, with the delicate and complex instrumentation crafted by this impressive multi-instrumentalist. Within the tentative vocals addressing the lyrics, Hannah hangs on to each note which projects an essence of sentiment, remorse, and melancholy. How a singer can project all of these emotions within the same lyrical lines is something else. Equally gripping as it is sensitive. One of the most powerful single releases of 2020 and then some!
On Hannah, Read sings stories of strangers, suns, dogs, moms, brothers, favorite bands, “oh god!”s and big shots as well as herself, by name. She rejoices and reviles her god-given name and then flips it around to name herself Hannah once again. It is an album of confession and transformation made ultimately singable.
Hannah is the anticipated follow-up to 2019’s M for Empathy EP, which Pitchfork called “a series of probing and gemlike miniatures,” while The FADER hailed her as “one of the most fascinating voices in indie.”
Hannah is available for pre-order now and is due out 4th September via Double Double Whammy.
Lomelda is Hannah Read’s musical project. In swamping, sweaty, Silsbee, TX, she first formed the band with her high school best friends. Throughout the next decade, Lomelda made a habit out of stretching to fit new friendships and shrinking down to solo strummings. Four albums and a never-the-same live show chronicle these shifts in shape and sound.
Hannah was produced by Hannah and her brother Tommy Read at his studio in Silsbee, TX. Over the span of a year and some change, it was recorded three different times before Hannah called it complete. In this, its final 14 song shape, Hannah will be released on September 4, 2020, by Double Double Whammy.
