TUNE Kate Lomas - Sweet Strange Days
Sweet Strange Days is a trippy pop journey lifting us away from the madness of the day-to-day life. The song’s minimalistic production was crafted by Kate herself and long-term collaborator Guy Britton and features Lomas’ distinctive British vocal daydreaming over a bed of warm piano sounds and repeating lo-fi drum break.
Of the single, Kate says: “The song is about having a day off from the madness and not taking anything too seriously. I would like people to feel like they are floating in a massive bubble over the sea eating candy floss.” Not only a songwriter, Lomas is passionate about production and crafting her own sounds, “production is really fun and it’s easy to get carried away but with this song I wanted to create something which felt really spacious and genuine and just let it be all about the vocal. Most of my productions have like 100 tracks or more but this is literally 24 tracks. I didn’t want to bring any drama into the production, I just wanted something which is kinda trip hoppy and pop and I think it’s just really nice”.
