Following swiftly on from ‘Carpet’, Lande Hekt’s new song ‘The Future’ is mainly about the stark and bleak reality of climate change, as referred to with the lyrics ‘Think about the future/There might not be one/There probably won’t be one.’ Lande explains that the song “is also about getting older, trying to exist in a truly horrible world and trying to be a good person (and often not succeeding). It’s an homage to my friend who taught me that you can’t ignore environmental issues and showed me how scary it all is. We’re all running out of time.”
'The Future’ is the second track to be revealed from Lande’s forthcoming debut solo EP, Gigantic Disappointment, a collection of seven songs which is set for release November 15. The songs, which also include the already released ‘Carpet’, were recorded with Ben David of The Hard Aches at his studio on top of a hill in Cudlee Creek, which is in the Adelaide Hills in Australia.
As vocalist and guitarist in Exeter indie punk band Muncie Girls, Lande is no stranger to playing shows across the UK and further afield but now she’s striking out solo and will accompany the release of Gigantic Disappointment with a clutch of her own live dates with various musical friends.
