Litvar arrive with wondrous second album 'Eloquently Aimless'; a piece of genre blending brilliance

In the world of music, small-town indie-rock is experiencing a renaissance as listeners seek relatable experiences beyond the confines of big city stereotypes. One band that has been steadily amassing a sincere following is Litvar, a trio of American indie-rockers hailing from Willimantic, Connecticut. Comprising Rex Thurstan (he/they), Violet Falkowski (she/they), and Joe Lemieux (he/they), Litvar's music is not only influenced by their upbringing in this unassuming town but also shaped by their resolute battle against the status quo, which resonates powerfully in their genre-blending sound.

Their all encompassing approach blends nuances of indie, rock, pop and everything in between, and after making waves with impactful singles like ‘You Should Find A New Boyfriend’, ‘Alone (Not Lonely)’, and ‘Oh My God,’ Litvar's now release their long-awaited second album, 'Eloquently Aimless.'

Among the standout tracks from the album, 'All Those Minutes Ago' stands out as a biting commentary on relationship woes, infused with a healthy dose of sarcasm and a constant desire for self-improvement. It's a sonic journey that takes you through the rollercoaster of human emotions. It's clever, witty music that has so much to love about it, reminding you of The National and The 1975 in places, and striking a delicate balance between '00s-inspired nostalgia and contemporary indie songwriting.

"Eloquently Aimless" delves into the complex terrain of emerging from dark mental spaces, grappling with ego, wrestling with self-doubt, and yearning to rewrite the past. It's a journey through the labyrinth of human emotions, where each track is a poignant chapter in this narrative.

Litvar's ability to infuse raw authenticity into their music while seamlessly traversing multiple genres is a testament to their artistic prowess. In an era when authenticity and relatability are prized in music, Litvar's 'Eloquently Aimless' arrives as a heartfelt and genre-blending masterpiece.
