Curse Of Lono share new single from latest album release ‘People In Cars’


Curse Of Lono have shared new single ‘Steppin’ Out’, taken from their most recent studio album People In Cars, released via Submarine Cat Records.

On the track, frontman Felix Bechtolsheimer’ says, “‘Steppin’ Out’ is one of the most positive songs on the new album. The last few years have been pretty dark for most of us and this song was my way of packing that stuff away and stepping back out into the world. It’s a long way off being a celebratory party song but there’s a message of real hope in there. It’s one of my favourite tracks to play live at the moment.”

Recorded with long-term collaborator and producer Oli Bayston and engineer Iain Berryman, People In Cars is a deeply atmospheric, cinematic record that reinforces Curse Of Lono as one of the most compelling and lyrical voices of the British musical underground.

People In Cars is the critically acclaimed London band’s third album, following 2017’s debut Severed and 2018’s As I Fell, which led to the band receiving the Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at the UK Americana Awards in 2019.

An initial version of People In Cars was recorded in June 2020, each band member – guitarist Joe Hazell, drummer Neil Findlay, keyboardist Dani Ruiz Hernandez and bassist Charis Anderson – recording their parts individually. But, having lost his father in April, Felix began writing more songs for the record, digging deep, and recorded them stripped down with Bayston, pedal steel player Joe Harvey-Whyte and Boxed In drummer Liam Hutton early in 2021.

People In Cars sees the band adopt a post-country aesthetic, swapping their Delta Arcade Fire feel for a subtle, cosmic feel based around Felix’s brooding baritone, the subaqueous sound of his rare Fender bajo sexto guitar and the deep space ambience of Harvey-Whyte.
