LAGASTA: “Basil”

May 19th, 2020

After 10 years of driving around the music blogosphere, LAGASTA duo re-introduce themselves with a new five-original-track EP, entitled “Driving”, which marks the pair’s first release in four years since 2016 debut single “Roberto”.

“We’ve been working hard on some original tunes for a while now and it seems like the right time to start giving the final shape to all the tracks that were recorded these last years, and release some of them in a series of EPs in the following months, starting with this one…’Driving’ comes from our love to test drive music while we’re wandering on the road. Its aesthetic, which has been built through all these years on LAGASTA, is based on our favorite object: cars. It feels like a long ride with our friends, lovers and people we’ve met through these years.”

Those who are familiar with the blog these last 10 years, and with all the compilations the LAGASTA duo has released since then, will identify in the “Driving” EP some of the things the duo has always loved in music. All these new tracks give you THAT feeling of driving around on empty roads; or just gazing them.

Today, our good friends over at Sinchi Collective premiered the EPs opener “Basil”, a track of abstract atmospheres and lost echoes wrapped around a monotonous loop. It could be the soundtrack of these isolation days, and at the same time the track of the first day after lockdown; you get the sense of having the same feelings, whether youʼre free to choose or not. Give it a spin above, and ride with us.

The “Driving” EP arrives on May 22 via LAGASTA Records. Pre-order your copy here.
