Single: La Bonte – Marching In A Field Of Wheat

“Los Angeles-based artist La Bonte is releasing a follow-up to 2022’s “Grist For The Mill” with the new “Economy Play” EP on Friday, July 19th, 2024 via Anxiety Blanket Records. Remaining an independent musician for any prolonged period of time is bound to inflict some emotional distress on an artist’s psyche. In the pixelated world of algorithms and content saturation, it becomes financially self-destructive to try and keep up with the demands of consistently creating music, especially if an artist wants to maintain a certain level of quality in their recordings. Garrett La Bonte has been reckoning with this on his newest EP “Economy Play.”

I’m excited to share a sneak peek of the press release for an upcoming EP set to launch in July. The new single is a captivating blend of slacker lo-fi indie rock with a touch of melancholy, showcasing the artist’s exceptional songwriting skills. The track builds up to a powerful, climactic ending, emphasizing the significance of the lyrics. The energy and storytelling in this song are remarkable, and I can’t wait to experience the entire EP. While I have the privilege of an early listen, I highly recommend waiting for the official release – it’s definitely worth it. The accompanying video adds a new dimension to the song’s atmosphere.
