Tomberlin, the Los Angeles via Louisville, KY artist, has shared “Hours,” the latest from her upcoming Projections EP. Projections, which was co-produced by Alex G (Alex Giannascoli) and bandmate Sam Acchione, continues the arc of her critically acclaimed 2018 debut, At Weddings. The rich vocal harmonies and guitar lines that made At Weddings so riveting still provide the EP’s foundation, but new percussive backing and instrumental flourishes open the path forward for Tomberlin.
Of the song, Sarah Beth Tomberlin says: “‘Hours’ is a song ruminating on time spent with someone who makes time spent doing nothing together feel meaningful. So many love songs are like ‘love me’ or ‘i love you’, but writing this I wasn’t sure what I was feeling or the other person’s feelings. I have a tendency to feel the need to explain myself before I’ve even been asked to. I think this song is me trying to do that in my head instead of with that person prematurely, even though I sent this song to them directly after I wrote it.“
Projections is available for pre-order now and due digitally October 16th via Saddle Creek, with a limited edition picture disc release to follow on November 13th. Saddle Creek pre-orders include an exclusive Risograph print with the album’s lyrics.
