Once you put away the Dylan reference in this new Lawn single, it reveals an emphatic punch of a tune. Musically, it’s pretty standard guitar and drums, but I think the lyrical play, and the delivery of said lyrics, leaves you with a good impression of the group. Those lyrics are delivered in a very matter of fact manner, akin to spoken word, though they take on a slight howl for the work in the chorus. Just another example of competent songwriting that will appear on the group’s debut LP, which drops May 11th via Forged Artifacts.
Still trying to wrap my head around some of the tunes we missed last week, like this jam from Lawn that popped up on GFP. The softness of the chorus has some similarities to acts like Hovvdy, mainly in its use of melody and simple structures. But, admittedly, the bread and butter for me is the sharp guitar cuts, almost art punk in manner, causing the song to inhabit this infectious stuttering landscape, setting the mood for that smooth aforementioned chorus. Looks like the band’s debut LP, Blood on the Tracks, will be a sure-fire winner; it’s being released by Forged Artifacts on May 11th.
