The new single from Seattle-based artist Lomon, Escape Velocity, is about addiction and relapse and the fight to break out of a cycle, but failing miserably with each attempt. Through kaleidoscopic melodies, hypnotic vocals and falsetto harmonies, Lomon loses you throughout this track. The Fountain caught up with the artist to discuss the track and plans for the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Escape Velocity?
It’s been wonderful. People have drawn comparisons with it to some of my biggest inspirations, such as Radiohead- and that is a massive compliment. The song is very personal to me, and releasing it to the world was very nerve wracking. It’s a relief to me that so many people are connecting to the message behind it, actually.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
I keep falling down but I’ll always get back up.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?
Making more music! I want to keep building out my body of work. I have so many ideas and I feel like now is a good time to explore them.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I’ve not really been much of a live performer, but I would have loved to start were it not for COVID. When the pandemic is over, I’m planning to gather a band and start gigging in the Seattle area, but I don’t know exactly where yet!
