Berkshire-born indie singer-songwriter and pianist Lorne released his new single, ‘Oil and Water’, out now via Bushy Records. Oil and Water is the first single from Lorne’s upcoming debut EP ‘Maze – EP’ to be released on the 24 November.
Lorne was classically trained on the piano from age seven. Introduced to Peter Gabriel in his teens, Lorne was taken with his sound and notes the musician as a great influence for his music. Also drawn to established songwriters, such as Bon Iver, Damien Rice, Coldplay, Danny Elfman, Elbow and Radiohead, his attraction to melodic pop, ambient and rock is evident in his ideas.
His newest offering, ‘Oil and Water’ is a poignant and emotive track, weighted with the pause of empty spaces and melancholic undertones. The desolation in Lorne’s voice gives way to resignation, with lyrics depicting religious imagery highlighting the deep atmospheric mood of the track.
Speaking of the song Lorne says, “Like many songs, Oil and Water was inspired by a relationship that didn’t work out. I liked the analogy ‘Oil and Water’ to describe two sides that fail to come together no matter how hard they try”.
