“Dead and Gone” is just one of the jarringly evocative singles which you’ll find on the latest EP “We Remain” to be released from up and coming artist Lautz.
There’s a piercingly haunting air to each element in Dead and Gone, but it hits the hardest through the vocals. The space which lingers around the simple lines such as “She’s all that I cared for” amplifies the emotive potency to a level which you won’t be accustomed to hearing on the radio. The single doesn’t boast the smoothest polish. But raw feel to Dead and Gone actually allows you to believe that you’re listening to a soul being exposed through experimental melodies and candid lyrics.
With subtle elements of Surf Rock and Blues weaved into the Indie Rock mix you get a branch of familiarity to grasp to while the cold slightly dystopian soundscape compels you to surrender your entire consciousness.
You can check out Dead and Gone for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
