Lande Hekt Releases New Single ‘December’

From Debut Solo Album ‘Going to Hell’

Due 22nd Jan 2021 via Get Better Records

‘December’ is Lande Hekt’s fittingly seasonal new single, the latest to be released from her forthcoming debut solo album ‘Going to Hell’, which will be out 22 Jan 2021 via Get Better Records. Lande says of its subject matter: “This one is about feeling scared to do anything about it when you like someone. It’s a bit of a self indulgent teenage issue, worrying whether anyone will fall in love with you or not, but I think it’s also trying to work through the worries that go along with realising you’re gay.” 

Lande Hekt has crafted this stunning anthemic hit! These standout reflective lyrics consume the audience as the honesty wrapped up in the vocals assist to this uplifting energy from the arrangement. “December” conveys such an infectious energy from this vital artist. A powerful track and a must-hear for all.

‘December’ follows a series of track releases from the forthcoming full-length. ‘Undone’ is full of longing and regret and ‘Whiskey’ is about Lande’s experience learning how to come to terms with being gay – realising that pretending you’re not gay can’t go on forever. The accompanying heart-warming music video was masterfully shot by Lande’s long-term collaborator Martyna Wisniewska (@gingerdope) and is an intimate portrayal of Lande’s love with her girlfriend Lucy. ‘80 Days of Rain’ is also out now and reference’s Lande learning to get angry about climate change. 

‘Going to Hell’ sounds like the sum of Hekt’s wide-ranging influences – The Replacements, The Raincoats, Sharon Van Etten, The Slits, Patti Smith, Sacred Paws, Le Tigre, Against Me! – multiplied by her own distinct voice.
