NZ electro-pop artist, Lontalius has teased his sophomore album with brand new single 'Swim' an introspective reverie that brings the perfect balance between light and dark, the calm and the storm, the optimistic and the pessimistic.
Lontalius says, “Swim is about the acceptance that with all the heartbreak, anxiety and stress of being young, the universe is still leading you on the right path. You can have everything seemingly perfectly lined up in front of you, but sometimes it just won't work out… it's a song that i'm really proud of. It hit a lot of marks I had been trying to hit for the past few years. It's energetic and it has a pace to it that I haven't done before, all the while still living in the 'lontalius' world, I think.”
Lontalius will release his sophomore album All I Have On October 4 before joining Japanese Wallpaper on the road for his first ever Australian shows this year.
