Langkamer Release New Single “Total Motion” Featuring Willie J Healey 

& Announce New EP “Red Thread Route” out November 30th

A classic ode to the road, “Total Motion” sees Langkamer join forces with several stalwarts of the Bristol music scene, including Willie J Healey who lends his unmistakable drawl as guest vocalist.

Production was handled by the dynamic duo of Alfie Tyson-Brown(Katy J Pearson) and Jack Ogborne(Bingo Fury).

In just over 2 minutes Langkamer delves into this explosive exploration that truly lifts the listener on the path of this expressive journey, meandering through this wealth of heaviness to more melodic movements. The ardent, ferocious intro leads the way to the volatile vocal notes, as the instrumentation boasts such cutting tones and forceful power, Langkamer delivers another cut that oozes this infectious melody.

Lyrically capturing the life on the road, what feels like endless time between artists touching down to the venue and their shows, the landscape whizzing past the windows. Langkamer vividly builds this impressive soundscape that shares this vast range of emotions that the audience is drawn to, a labyrinth of raw textures and biting tonality. This immense range of addictive hooks bursts at every turn throughout this quick release whilst the compelling detail sets this outfit apart.

From their debut album which came out last year, Langkamer are easily one of the most promising outfits out there with this blazing energy. They continue to craft the most alluring arrangements that capture the magic of this band.

“I started writing ‘Total Motion’ while we were out on tour at the start of the year,” says lead vocalist Josh Jarman of the track’s inspiration. “As amazing as touring can be, it certainly has its difficulties. I needed to write a song about the exhaustion, the long drives, the listlessness…

“There are moments where you find yourself thinking, ‘What the hell am I doing here?’ It’s the same in so many areas of life – it’s so easy to be haunted by uncertainty. This is a theme song for those doubts.”

“It’s an honour and a pleasure to have been asked to sing on my bud’s song,” adds Willie J Healey“I love the song! Long live it!”
