Loney Dear – Loney Dear

      No Comments on Loney Dear – Loney Dear
Album cover for "Loney Dear"

I am rooted in songs filled with drive and urgency and yearning. I stray into other worlds—worlds filled with opera singers and dub basslines and experimental noises—but inevitably I hear an album filled with driving rhythms and urgent melodies and yearning lyrics, and I am drawn in and taken back to my roots.

Loney Dear’s songs have drawn me in and taken me back.

Every song on Loney Dear has a unique personality. Together they compose a whole greater than its parts. “Pun” welcomes you with a plaintive melody that promises a story of loss, then slams into a rousing 5/4 tuba and drum beat. This juxtaposition of soft vulnerability and angry propulsion continues as Emil Svanangen exorcises the demons of loss that created this record.

These songs are melancholy and confused and noisy, but in a quiet and thoughtful way. If you are like me and you seek drive and urgency and yearning that are framed in reflective and adventurous creativity, then Loney Dear is for you.
