Lane 8 keeps on giving. With his 2018 album, Little By Little, and many subsequent singles, he's been on a transparent and evolving journey through music, creating expansive organic spaces that are truly transporting. His latest EP, Bluebird / Duchess, feels like the ultimatum, the culmination of that creative exploration.
If you've seen Lane 8 on his no-phones-allowed tour, you've probably heard the title track from this EP. Moving through melancholy and uplifting electronic layers, listening to this track feels like reading a book, trying to decipher meaning from its experience. "Bluebird" is the stunner, here, as it guides us through piano into full on electronic progressive, and is just plainly encapsulating, of another world. Hear it loud and let it take over your body, absorbing it as it creates a gorgeous soundscape throughs repeating synths.
