Melbourne’s LUCIANBLOMKAMP, easily one of the most exciting names in local electronic music today, has just announced a brand spanking new national tour. The tour comes in support of his dense, introspective new single From Afar.
The song is lathered in electronic vibes, punctuated by his soothing, distorted voice. The intensity crescendos incrementally before soaring with stunning reverb and percussion, though it never quite outshines his vocals. Never forced, never strained, it is constructed beautifully and it’s even easier to listen to – easily one of the best tracks he’s released so far, and our personal favourite.
Have a listen below:
The tour is hitting the main hubs of the east coast, beginning with Melbourne before jumping up to Brisbane and finishing in Sydney. In Sydney, it will be one of luck few bands left to experience GoodGod before it sadly changes hands in the near future. Although it’s not known yet what form the new GoodGod will take, we’re praying it remains a hub for live music, and supporting artists such as LUCIANBLOMKAMP.
Although he has been involved in some smashing lineups this year, including at the one and only Splendour in the Grass, this will be his first solo tour. It promises to incorporate the dazzling visuals that first stunned audiences in his live performances which came after his acclaimed first album Post-Nature that arrived last year. Luckily for us however, there is a new album in the works, which should hit the airwaves early next year and feature From Afar.
