Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to LÓN. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their sincere style.
The thing that struck me the most about this band is the singer’s warm and passionate voice.
A vocal timbre that fills the sound spectrum in an incredible way, a voice that manages to speak directly to the soul and heart of the listener.
I feel that we are dealing with highly experienced musicians, the attention to detail and harmonic choices are sought after and never banal and obvious.
The production is perfect for the genre, simple and essential but every element is put in the right place and the song flows well, growing slowly and creating indelible emotions in the listener.
Very nice also the mix that leaves the right space for each sound element and the song breathes well.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Earthquake is LÓN’s Single Out Now!
Pure and Real Music!
One of Iceland’s most beloved artists, Valdimar Guðmundsson (better known as frontman of 6-piece rock and roll band Valdimar), explores his folk roots along with powerhouse performers Ásgeir Aðalsteinsson and Ómar Guðjónsson in new americana project LÓN.
Self-described “country dads who wound up in the suburbs”, these long-time friends and collaborators dealt with the lockdown of 2020 by playing and recording either in Ómar’s studio garage or in a cabin by Iceland’s biggest lake, Þingvallavatn. So out of the pandemic LÓN was born.
