Brighton, UK indie/alt artist Laundromat (AKA Toby Hayes) has revealed his new single “Gloss“.
The song is out today (Oct 5) via Brace Yourself Records (Italia 90, Panic Shack, Grandmas House). Buy it here.
Toby says of the track:
“The initial idea for this tune sort of fell out of the sky and onto my lap. I was feeling it immediately, so I quickly recorded the bass part on my phone to make sure I didn’t forget it. When I listened back, it had a really cool energy so I ended up using it in the final mix. Maybe I’ll record bass with my phone from now on. I was hoping to get someone else to mix this, but ended up getting too into it, so this is another frantic DIY ‘gaffa tape mix.’ I also really love Josie’s voice, she brings something very special to the project. Lyrically, Gloss is mostly about denial, more screen time than is healthy (seems to be a running theme at the moment), and the warped perspective that comes with that. Everyone I speak to is still very much picking up the pieces…like we’re all spectators to some fantastic shit-show…”
