The newest lower from Frank Lloyd Wleft’s upcoming debut sees a cohesive meld of Americana, people and post-punk take the helm. Brimming with heat guitar plucks and buzzing vocals, the country-inspired melody begins a confident story of idyllic dwelling, earlier than a protracted spoken phrase interlude introduces the discordant undercurrent on the coronary heart of the monitor.
As distortion seeps in, Wleft’s post-punk supply is a pointedly self-reflective account of a songwriter’s frustration on the aspects of youthful dwelling. Fracturing the track’s preliminary rosy sheen, he toys with a mocking tone as he interjects his personal pleasantries to comment: “is not that fantastic, that is the facility of this electrical guitar”.
With a stream-of-conciousness model, paying homage to up to date post-punk acts like The Cool Greenhouse or Lodge Lux, exasperation sees Wleft change into an omniscient narrator in a single breath and a demanding protagonist by the subsequent.
As he flits between down-trodden lyricism and a sprawling upbeat melody, extra vocals from fellow nation singer Wildwood Daddy and the dream-esque fiddle backdrop of Goat Woman’s Lottie Pendlebury weave an unrelenting, genre-melding conflict of a posh relationship to youth.
“Take You Over” pleasantly follows the winding jangle-pop of debut single “Caroline” in July, anticipating the discharge of Wleft’s debut album Raised on Pink Milk due 6 October.
