On November 28, Philadelphia-based indie pop-rock artist LOUD HOUND will release his anticipated debut EP It’s Okay To Be Lonely Part #1 via Pendant Music.
Today LOUD HOUND is pleased to share “Magnet,” the first single to be lifted from the upcoming release. “Magnet” is streaming now on YouTube and is available on all digital platforms for any playlist shares.
Commenting on the song LOUD HOUND’s Tommy Florio says, “‘Magnet’ is a love song. It is about falling head over heels in love, working together with your partner as team and helping each other out when you need them most. My relationship is constantly inspiring me to be better person.”
LOUD HOUND is the musical project of songwriter/producer/multi-
Written and recorded over the past two years, It’s Okay To Be Lonely Part #1 was completely recorded in Tommy’s home studio in the Philadelphia-area where he played all of the instruments and produced the EP. For “Monday Morning,” Tommy teamed up with mixer Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, Ra Ra Riot) and Paul Gold (Panda Bear, Tycho, Weyes Blood) for mastering and Ricky Berroti mixed the single “Keep Ya Head Up.”
Influenced by artists of all genres and eras, such as Bright Eyes, Modest Mouse, Cage The Elephant, Beruit and Tame Impala, Loud Hound’s sound is not easy to pin down, yet Tommy’s lo-fi guitar sound and lyrical topics seem to be the common denominator.
Throughout the EP, Tommy’s lyrics are poetic and confessional; personal, but universal. Songs like “Magnet” and “idwfu (I don’t wanna fix u),” are inspired by the “loneliness” that comes with the pursuit of your dreams, falling in love, the melancholiness that comes with love, false friends and the drama that comes from having fake people around you. Florio says, “I made a lot of calculated risk to make this band work and it can get kind of lonely. Sometimes you need sacrifice things to acheive your goals.” However, there is also a sense of hopefulness running throughout the release,”Keep Ya Head Up” encourages listeners to live life to the fullest and enjoy each moment the best you can while it’s here to have.
