Another lazy Sunday falls upon me and once again I find myself stumbling into the smooth, embracing arms of Alohaha. With new single ‘Nausea’ now available on Soundcloud, this second offering follows hotly in the footsteps of first single ‘Welcome To Your New Life’, which was released earlier this month (check out the track in my post here.)
Alohaha is a new project driven by LA-based producer Jake Sinclair and Lyndsay Thornton, together they create a very luscious space in which melting landscapes effortlessly cascade. With two steel guitars and two voices entwined in song, their smooth Americana lo-fi sound is hypnotic.
Continuing with the personal and heartfelt theme of first single, ‘Nausea’ continues to build upon the trials and tribulations of a lived-in relationship, with lines like ‘I made a bed out of irony, lie with me’ taking you into honest and insightful realms, sincere and raw in delivery.
There is something understated and great about Alohaha, giving you the feeling that they will go the distance and venture far. I see good things on the horizon for this duo and look forward to what’s to come from their new album which is due for release this December.
