Curse Of Lono Turns Dark Times Into Beauty On New Single 'Think I'm Alright Now'
Having lost his band, his dad, his uncle and his ex-partner all in the space of one horrific year, rather than syncing into the abyss, Curse Of Lono used the anguish to fuel his emphatic songwriting. A recovered heroin addict, Felix Bechtolsheimer (the man behind Curse Of Lono), reflects on the struggles of his past and find a new sense of hope despite the wave of recent challenges and loss on his new single.
A simplistic yet entrancing offering, 'Think I'm Alright Now' captures an air of escapism as Felix and his band layer crunchy modulated synths with raw guitar lines and shuffling drums to create a moody yet driving soundscape. Blurring the lines between Americana and psychedelic rock, the track ebbs and flows ethereally allowing Felix's understated, yet wholesome and warm Matt Berninger-esque vocals to take centre stage.
The perfect backdrop for a TV road trip across America, 'Think I'm Alright Now' is not only a piece of honest and hugely effective songwriting but also a moody soundscape with more to offer with each listen.
