Lontalius - Kick In the Head

Following on from September's All I Wanna Say, 18 yr old Eddie Johnston returns with his latest new single, Kick In the Head. Taking a more organic approach to his songwriting Johnston strips out much of the earlier synth-work for a more well rounded spacious sound with the incessant strum of a guitar forming much of its backdrop. Layered seamlessly with warming strings sections, glistening keyed melodies and his disconsolate vocal talents, his latest effort proves to be just as emotive and sombering.  "[Kick In The Head's] one of the rockier songs on the album and it's a bit different from what I've released in the past" explains Lontalius. "I wrote it as a lo-fi, shoegaze-y demo a few years ago. It took on a new life when I started playing it at shows with my band." Take a listen for yourselves below.

Lontalius' debut full-length will be released early 2016 through Partisan Records.
