“It looks like BOA could become your go-to band for new soothing and hush vibes.”
“Lorne marks the arrival of an assured talent, someone who could evolve into something special. Languid but affecting acoustic songcraft.”
“A signal of intent, a display of his aspirations.”
Fresh on the Net
Berkshire-born indie singer-songwriter and pianist Lorne is set to release his new single, ‘Oil & Water’, on the 5th October via Bushy Records. Oil & Water is the first single from Lorne’s upcoming debut EP ‘Maze’ to be released on the 24 November. His latest single, “Bread Alone’ was premiered by Clash Mag and highlighted on Wonderland Mag, Impose, Nialler9, Sir Chillicious, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, Fresh On The Net and more. Performing his songs to a welcoming range of audiences, Lorne has headlined at The Troubadour in Earl’s Court, The Bedford and Notting Hill Arts Club.
Lorne was classically trained on the piano from age seven. Introduced to Peter Gabriel in his teens, Lorne was taken with his sound and notes the musician as a great influence for his music. Also drawn to established songwriters, such as Bon Iver, Damien Rice, Coldplay, Danny Elfman, Elbow and Radiohead, his attraction to melodic pop, ambient and rock is evident in his ideas.
His newest offering, ‘Oil & Water’ is a poignant and emotive track, weighted with the pause of empty spaces and melancholic undertones. The desolation in Lorne’s voice gives way to resignation, with lyrics depicting religious imagery highlighting the deep atmospheric mood of the track.
Speaking of the song Lorne says, “Like many songs, Oil and Water was inspired by a relationship that didn’t work out. I liked the analogy ‘Oil and Water’ to describe two sides that fail to come together no matter how hard they try.”
