Lay Llamas – 'We are you' digital single featuring Horrors remix out on May 12th
Lay Llamas – We are you
We are you is the debut single by Italian band Lay Llamas.
The band formed in 2011 and since this inception have released two sold out cassettes and contributed a track to Rocket Recordings 15th Anniversary compilation called ‘Crystallized’.
The psych-pop of We are you is centred around a repetitive bass line reminiscent of the Talking Heads classic ‘Psychokiller’. This simple but addictive groove is encircled with washes of psychedelic keys, guitars and whispers that builds to a climatic chanted chorus.
The radio edit of We are you is backed up with a remix by The Horrors Tom Furse who turns the track into a cosmic disco floor filler.
An unedited version of We are you can be found on the bands forthcoming debut album Ostro which is released on 26 May.
The single and album was mastered by the genius that is James Plotkin.
Lay Llamas are going to be hitting European stages throughout 2014, starting with a performance at the Eindhoven Psych Lab in June as well as touring the UK supporting Goat in September where they will be playing the Liverpool Psych Festival alongside the rest of the Rocket Recordings roster.
The single is launched 12 May
