Lontalius – Kick In The Head

Wellington-based electronic songwriter Lontalius has shared a brand new track, Kick in The Head, which will underpin his forthcoming debut album (due out next year via Partisan Records), along with All I Wanna Say. The new song was recorded with Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, Youth Lagoon, PJ Harvey) and it deviates a bit from the minimal electronic production of its predecessor to embrace instead a more instrumentals path, made of piano chords, few strings and acoustic guitars. There remain the soft, warm vocals of the new zealander artist, highlighted here by the wise production put together by Chant.

Speaking about¬†Kick In The Head, Lontalius says that it’s “one of the rockier songs on the album and it’s a bit different from what I’ve released in the past. 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.
