Larune sparkles up the metropolis with their cosmic country and groovy pop. Leader Kamara Thomas writes story-songs from an American heartland obscured by memory, myth and mysticism. Many of the songs seem to be deeply personal confessions from characters spanning a not-yet-told American history, and yet the chords they strike are peculiarly universal.
Band members Gabe Berezin, Lee Frisari, Gordon Hartin, Serena Southam and Matt Whyte help to create the mythical realm of each song. Four-part harmonies glide over irresistable pop and country grooves as the pedal steel trades sonorous licks with the rich and resonant piano. And lilting through the entire ensemble is Kamara’s unique, intense, milky-wayed warble.
Inspired by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Gram Parsons, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Larune creates lush landscapes with haunting melodies, dreamy harmonies, and songs straight from a prairie ghosttown saloon.
