1. Product Details
Rania Woodard is a queer black woman living in the south. North Florida isnt known for its progressiveness but thats where she and Brian Squillace formed LANNDS a dreamy psychedelic take on electro-pop that pushes back at the environment its created in. Rania grew up in Memphis Tennessee playing guitar in a Pentecostal church playing street gigs with local blues guitarists in the summers and writing pop-country songs on the side. She later moved to Jacksonville Florida where she met North Carolina-born producer Brian Squillace. Inspired by her pop sensibility and emotional approach to songwriting his trippy sonic palette and their shared commitment to creating progressive art in the deep south they created their third EP lotus.For LANNDS lotus represented a turning point. After the release of their first EP they found initial success with an inclusion on Spotifys Fresh Finds and they caught the attention of tastemaker blogs like Neon Gold and Line of Best Fit. Following their second EP in 2018 they toured supporting TENDER and played an official SXSW showcase. Afterwards they spent a year working on a third release. They later scrapped the project after taking LSD together concluding that theyd been weighed down by self-doubt. With lotus they eschewed all outside influence pushing to make sounds that moved them and felt authentic. Theyve since resumed that mission of authenticity releasing In The Garden the newest of their singles to debut since signing with Run for Cover. In the Garden much like lotus is a pulsing urgent work that captures raw emotion and embodies the DIY ethos of LANNDS-all writing recording artwork and video content is done by Rania and Brian. The track is intoxicating and wondrous greeting you with the sounds of chittering birds as if youve stepped into an idyllic paradise. Theres a hypnotizing energy from the careful rise and fall of Ranias vocals her song dreamily maneuvering the luxuriant instrumentals. She offers instructions a reminder to reach and claim a current season thats waiting for conquest.As Rania explained of In the Garden the track is centered around the idea of seizing each moment especially when so much of our time is limited. Its a take on how I spent a year inside to recenter my awareness and how that made me realize there wont ever be a right time to do what you want and to just go for it. The song is a metaphor for the death and rebirth of our constant daily lives and how were just getting by through the ebbs and flows of life. Reaffirming Ranias commitment to pushing boundaries and normalizing people of color in indie music the material exists on its own plane merging vocals that make you want to cry with a beat that makes you want to dance.
