Made up by 3 brothers in Canterbury, UK, lotusbliss is an up-and-coming band on the rise that are gearing up to release a new EP in early April. Ahead of the new project the band has released a spacey new single entitled “Thunder In The Room” that personally reminded me of some early Kings of Leon, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The lyrical journey of their new single embodies a frustration and anger towards failing systems, imprisoning status-quos and leaders that have lied to and failed us – sensations that have felt very real and present especially over the last year through different circumstances and movements, according to their press release.

Alternative | LA Parties Unveils Impressive Debut Single “LA Parties”

Posted by on March 19, 2021

LA Parties” is a song about looking at the ‘Instagram life’ – what we see on TV and social media – and discerning it as fake. It was written amidst chaos as LA Parties (real name Andy Gorel) was enduring during a very difficult and depressed period of his life. The breakout artist had just turned 20 years old, and had mangled his hand in an accident – leaving him to believe he’d never play music again. “I struggled greatly with how this visual world we live in would see me, and the prospect of not being able to pursue my greatest passion, music,” says Gorel.

That was in September 2017. Gorel spent every moment he could, re-learning how to play the guitar. By March 2018, he had miraculously recovered enough to write “LA Parties” alone in his West Philadelphia apartment. It began with the simple guitar part heard in the intro. Coming off of a booze-packed, party weekend full of new friends and new crush, “LA Parties” came to fruition.

Hitting the ground running, “LA Parties” is the wondrous debut single from LA Parties. A hard-hitting alternative rock single tailor-made for the 2020s, LA Parties is an artist you’re going to want to keep an eye on.
