Lutalo – Ocean Swallows Him Whole

Lutalo – Ocean Swallows Him Whole

Vermont’s Lutalo has unveiled a captivating new single, “Ocean Swallows Him Whole,” from their upcoming debut album. This track skillfully navigates the terrain of 90s indie rock and dark post-punk, exuding the DIY charm reminiscent of Sebadoh and Guided By Voices, while also carrying the danceable undercurrent of She Wants Revenge. Additionally, Lutalo’s modern pop singer-songwriter sensibilities add a fresh twist to their unique sound.

Lutalo describes “Ocean Swallows Him Whole” as a partial Icarus reference, delving into the idea of engaging with places, environments, or people with preconceived intentions. This approach, driven by the desire for personal gain or image enhancement, often leads to losing one’s true self. This theme is a keen observation of societal behaviors, particularly in how people interact with popular cities and figures. Lutalo’s perspective is observational rather than judgmental, highlighting a pervasive cultural tendency.

Produced by Lutalo themselves, this single showcases a seamless blend of nostalgic and contemporary influences. The layered vocals and dynamic instrumentals create an immersive listening experience, further enriched by the insightful lyrics.

Lutalo’s debut album, “The Academy,” is set for release on September 20 via Winspear.
