The Wilmington, NC-based band’s fantastic debut LP Imitation Life out in early 2023
Somewhere between the jangle of classic American college rock and the shimmer of late 80s / early 90s Britpop exists the music of Lauds.
Based out of Wilmington, NC (where they filmed Dawson’s Creek back in the day), the five-piece group will be releasing their illuminating full-length debut Imitation Life on January 10. 2023 via the rising Fort Lowell imprint. And one can clearly recognize the way by which BBC Radio resonates across the Atlantic Ocean and beneath the surfboards of songwriters J. Holt Evans lll and Mckay Glasgow on the latest single from the forthcoming LP, “Somehow.”
“’Somehow’ is one of the more uplifting tracks on the record. It’s about reciprocated feelings and the willful fog that covers you at the beginning of a new relationship,” Glasgow explains of the song. “We did bring in some heavy guitars to smear the background a bit, but overall it is a very upbeat song musically and lyrically.”
The Rock & Roll Globe is honored to officially premiere “Somehow” this morning on the site. If you could imagine the idea of Ride’s Nowhere if it was released on I.R.S. Records, you will love Lauds.
