Fresh off the back of announcing their upcoming album ‘You Stumble, I Fall’ earlier this year, London-based experimental post-rockers The Lazlo Device are dropping a 2nd single from the forthcoming release: ‘Beetle’. It follows on from the previous single and title track ‘You Stumble, I Fall’, which was released back in April and earned the band comparisons to Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age with its desert rock-style scale and stomp.
A far cry from the stormy rock of ‘You Stumble, I Fall’, the band embark on a slow-burner with the bouncy ‘Beetle’, set for release on 20th July. Taking influences from pogo-sticking ska and dub warmth, it’s a track that oozes the heat and headiness of an intimate space, encapsulating a sound that feels live and raw; Dan Murdoch’s vocals curl gravelly above an infectious swing rhythm, saxophone like dripping sweat and electrifying crash of drums and guitar in the chorus – tinged with that aftershow glow thanks to a constant rumble of humidity and twinkling pianos.
You Stumble, I Fall is out 31st August. It arrives after their debut album, Duelism, released in 2016, as well as several EPs, which have earned them comparison to post-rock heavyweights Radiohead, Arcade Fire, and Beta Band, amongst others.
Beetle drops 20th July and 3rd Single Known to You is out August 10th.
