Straight outta Southern Maine, Lina Tullgren is teasing another track off of her upcoming full length, Won, that is set to release, September 22 via Captured Tracks. Being a new artist on the scene is tough these days and Lina is proving herself ready for the rat race. She’s picking up a solid buzz after releasing two singles, “Asktell”and “Fitchburg State”, her third, “Get Lost” will only keep the momentum going. Her haunting melodies and intimacy conveyed through her introspective lyrics has us on the edge of our seats for the full release.
“I’m a huge Prince fan. He made a lot of music that was important to me throughout my life. Do you remember all those bootlegs that came out where he’s playing uilleann pipes? “Live At Pianos (1954)” is a masterpiece. When he died I lost it and I wrote this song that day.”
The track itself is beautifully soft at times and intro’d only by a vocal and electric guitar that set up an intimate glimpse into letting go of yourself and getting lost in that. It winds through a solitary look at taking a step back looking at yourself, you, on your own. Scary! You’ll find more questions than answers in the track but isn’t that life in general? Get lost and kiss yourself goodbye, sounds like a plan, Lina and thanks for the advice. I think we should all give it a try.
Once you listen to the track below and decide you’d like to listen to the whole album you can pre-order Won and browse merch here.
