Larches is the alt rock project of musician and producer, Jacob Cona. The artist is resolute in blurring the lines to a point where the mind flows into surreal planes of free explorations, uninhibited emotions, and necessary ruminations. The work under the banner is largely inspired by Jacob’s own struggles with loneliness, isolation, and hope. And each song is a portrait crafted with beautiful visuals that are rooted in concept, imagination, and creativity.

Larches have just released their debut album titled ‘Attack of the Telephones’. The ten tracks reference both vintage and 90s rock that ranges from The Beach Boys and Nick Drake to Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, to Elephant 6, R.E.M., and the B-52’s.

iTunes Artwork for 'Attack of the Telephones (by Larches)'

The track ‘Vessels’ opens the album. It is a mix of 2010 indie rock, lined with sunny vocals and experimental synths. Alternating between planes of slow chunky acoustics and grinding rock and electronica, the frames progressively fuse into each other. This complexity is sealed in by shoegaze sensibilities. It creates new perspectives within familiar situations, and perhaps that’s what living well is all about. It is truly great art. Check it out!

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