“Let’s adore our telephones off,” folk-punker Langhorne Slim (also known as Sean Scolnick) sings on “Never Break,” the title song of the Air that previews three songs off Slim’s forthcoming album Lost finally Vol. 1, going to be out November. 10 via Dualtone.
“Zombie,” the most recent and many upbeat song from the Never Break Air, follows suit, although the primary vein from the song is unrequited love: “She drank dark wine within the flowing rain / She read me books concerning the mind.Inches The lady Slim depicts within this song isn’t emotionally available beyond intellect and friendship—true to patriarchal form, Mr. Slim puts the mysterious mistress in your body of the monster. But also, he puts themself in a single. As Slim sings for the finish from the song, “he wanted her heart” in the same manner a spook wants the mind.
A bigger theme looms for Lost finally Vol. 1: Slim is eager for real human connection. The songwriter sings the praises of the utopia by which we’re able to live in addition to the social rigidity of real jobs and retiring to courses, self-improvement and first and foremost, smartphones. Lost finally Vol.1, he states, is definitely an make an effort to digital rebel against that type of living:
“In my very own way, I pray for any soul or spiritual revolution where we disconnect in the horrible manufactured noise around us, so we re-learn how to connect and love ourselves, one another and also the world in general: to appear within. Everyone’s searchin’ for something better around every corner, but it’s already the following. We’re all born whole, through livin’ we break apart.Inches
Langhorne Slim’s newest collection provides a new-age intending to the saying “not all who wander are lost” by claiming that you simply should be lost … or at best positively attempting to be lost. “Perhaps if a person feels found, they’ve nothing left to locate,” he states.
