Laneous - Hold My Hand

Laneous - Hold My Hand
Lachlan Mitchell aka. Laneous emerged as the leading member of Kafka, an ‘exceptional funk group, delivering an original style of soul, Afro Cuban jazz and heavy funk’ [Courier Mail].

In 2016, Mitchell relocated to Melbourne, a move that was a long time coming, and leapt to action when offered a stage at the pending Strawberry Fields festival. Excited to create new music with Laneous, Paul Bender and Simon Mavin of Hiatus Kaiyote, Donny Stewart (vibraphone and flugelhorn) and Hudson Whitlock (drums) – all revered and respected musicians – came on board swiftly as collaborators for the event.

Deadline looming, and with a room full of genius on their side, they infused controlled chaos with exotica and soul to produce a set which overflowed naturally into a record, with Paul Bender taking the reigns as the album’s producer.

Lead single 'Modern Romance' found support with media nationally and overseas which culminated in a national tour and sold-out Melbourne show, with BBC's Gilles Peterson declaring Laneous' live performance "One of the most incredible I've seen".

About this track...

"The song is about someone who doesn't treat with love when you might not be at your best (drunk). Ironically, I wrote the song in a particularly drunk moment, drawing from exotica as a reference. I wanted a bass line that recalled a spooky Martin Denny, influences that inspired the album I can't wait for everyone to hear."
