Kid Lazuras is back with yet another beguiling release titled, Words Are Just Another Way To Hide. The band presents a haunting portrait of fear and escape from the faculties of one’s mind. Using resonant acoustics of the accordion, guitar, and piano, they revamp the folk genre. We can instantly see references to The Beatles’s interpretation of the genre, in the twinkling blues and in the free-rhythm design. 

Overlaid with weighted spaces and ruminative prompts, these pensive pockets are beyond hypnotic. In the leaves of electric guitar that accentuate the bridge and final chorus, one can pick up on early Santana influences. Giving this all context is the mantric loops of baritones. Its depth is reflected in the ethereal sonic textures that make up the backdrop. Listen Now! 

This track comes after a two year hiatus in anticipation of the band’s upcoming debut album release, Utopia. It is set to release on August 15th of this year (2023). The band debuted in 2021 with ‘Men of God/Capital’ and have since released four tracks, including this one. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
