Like to Look Sad by Lane Lines: Review
The melodic soul of Lane Lines is a spectacular union of indie-pop and electronica. In between dreamy guitars and trippy vocal segments arrives Lane’s track “Like to Look Sad.” The song is an intriguing combination of mood and melancholy, themes in which the fitting presence of electro-bass and synthesizers settle in.
Electronica and its resonant companion folktronica have been trending in the music biz as of late. A plethora of artists finds joy in the aforementioned genres, particularly due to their atmospheric quality. The music of Lane Lines sparked my intrigue from its distinct folktronica outfit. Let me break it down folks, there are sections highlighting the electro-bass while neo-soul guitar chords bless the stage. Ultimately, this tasty mix played a crucial part in Like to Look Sad’s rhythm structure. Aside from this, space-like synths tuned in and the sound had an elegant appeal. Lane’s musical spirit dives in deep with thoughtful lyricism gripping with a heartfelt connection. At times, the weight of a melody can correlate with our own emotions. This is a powerful attribute to acquire, and Lane’s song delightfully focuses on that notion.
“Like to Look Sad” also incorporates a dash of psychedelia. Did I mention it’s one of my favorite genre tags? Indeed, as the reverbed vocals intermix with the surrounding synthesizers a pleasant musical trance enters. Lane Lines’ musical aura has plenty of potential, and I utterly look forward to more of the artist’s work!
