Lomelda Defies Distance In Soft Rock Single “From Here”

Distances can often be sealed mentally.

With gleaming guitar strings and soft voice that almost sedates you, Lomelda defies and struggles with distance in her new single “From Here.” It’s an intimate track that reduces the magnitude of the physical distance that separates two individuals, but at the same time makes you feel the vulnerability of our nature towards it. Taking us through her thoughts and small actions (i.e. calling) we use to seal the gap, at least mentally, Lomelda uncoils our desire to seal voids with her strumming chords:

“From Here” is Lomelda’s upcoming album Thx, which will be out on September 8th. Hannah Read is the mastermind behind Lomelda who has been making waves in the indie rock and pop scene for her soothing sounds that dive deep into our psyche.
