A well-rehearsed stage show with a custom light show. No awkward tuning breaks in-between songs. A concept record made up of one piece of music. Everything Lonesome does is thought out from inception and has an artistic purpose.
Lonesome are a five-piece Post-Rock band hailing from the fenland of Cambridgeshire. Remolded from previous outfits, Lonesome’s drastic change in style and approach wasn’t a planned move, but something that developed naturally as they begun the writing process for their first record “To Myself, From Myself” (released 26th April 2019).
Lonesome create a very particular brand of post-rock which ebbs and flows—between ethereal ambient sections and huge crescendos which is evident in their debut record.
At the heart of it, their debut release—”To Myself, From Myself”—is a concept album. It’s a letter written in a positive state of mind to a younger self, referring to a point in life where the reader felt trapped and struggled to see a future for themselves. It’s a record full of comfort and promise, from a present self with the experience of getting through the hard times.
A stand-alone single – a sequel to their debut record – “To Myself, From Myself” is coming soon; following on musically and conceptually from where they left off.
