Having already gained acclaim from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Popdust and BBC Radio 6 Music, Lailien is back with a new single which both captures a joyful, childlike experimentation and also encapsulating deep political messages and catchy vocal lines. Lailien is truly like no other artist!
Off the back of his 2019 album ‘Ensouler’, the new album ‘Ta-Da!’ once again see’s Lailien push boundaries musically with evolving synths, moving time signatures and his trademark processed vocals. Jumping between sounding like Animal Collective and Flaming Lips to the soundtrack to Mariokart, trying to describe Lailien’s music is near impossible. So complex is the songwriting and so thick are the layers of experimentation that his music demands the listener stop whatever they are doing and get fully lost in his magnificent noise.
Bewildering, baffling and often somewhat confusing, listening to Lailien’s music is like watching a David Lynch film with beer goggles on, magical and somewhat intoxicating.
Take a listen to the new single ‘Mr. Gorgeous’ yourself below:
