Lael Neale Shares “Faster Than The Medicine” (Official Video)
Lael Neale shares a new official video for “Faster Than The Medicine” from her forthcoming album Star Eaters Delight, available on CD/LP/CS/DSPs on April 21st, 2023 worldwide from Sub Pop.
“Faster Than The Medicine” gallops across a misty imagined English countryside, frenetically propelled by the drum machine built into Neale’s signature Omnichord. The video stars and is directed by Neale, who says, “It’s inspired by filmmaker Jonas Mekas; a collage of moments from my search for the mystical in the mundane.”
Cody Lawless shares summery “Get There Stay There”
“Get There Stay There” is just a little brutal. It was written about the guilt of leaving a relationship that wasn’t right, and while that’s the right thing to do, it still hurts on both ends. That snare that hits a little too hard is there to remind you of those pangs of indecision you get when you’re caught at the end of a relationship. Paired with the dreamy backing vocals, roundness of the driving bassline, and undeniable catchiness in the rhythm of the chorus, you can see all of Cody’s influences coming together; his past in hip hop shines through the floorboards of the indie-pop that comes to be in the studio. Then, you can toss in a little taste of what gets played in the car on the way to lay it all down… maybe the emotional intensity leftover form some metal blasted through the speakers.
