“Interstate Vision” is an exploration of memory, intimacy and the tragedies of distance.

DIY indie rock has experienced somewhat of a revival this year. Ditsy, personal, bedroom tracks are dominating the landscape and a band giving their two cents is Texas-based Lomelda, recent signings to Double Double Whammy Records. New cut ‘Interstate Vision’ is a combination of Southern-tinged country with sticky Brooklyn lo-fi guitars rounded off with a viscous vocal.

The song is decadently incongruous; the bright, spiralling guitars are tinged with gloominess, and frontwoman Hannah Read’s vocal is piercing throughout. Read and her troupe have managed to emerge with a sound that is emotional, personable and charmingly raw whilst remaining mature, focused and rooted in simple indie rock. You can’t ask for much more than that.

“Interstate Vision” is out now.
