After a few EPs and singles, North Carolina’s Lauds have finally released their debut long player, Imitation Life, and let me tell you, it is some solid jangle/dream pop gold. It’s packed with lush, jangly guitars dancing around echoed vocals and a driving rhythm section. Lauds has set the bar high for all albums released in 2023 with Imitation Life.
Check out album opener “Paralell” and “24” (below) for a taste.
Imitation Life is out now via Fort Lowell Records. Get your ears on this one. Enjoy.
