LILY031 | Philippine Release Date: February 10, 2017
Lomboy first released the single “In the Chamber of Vanu” with Lilystars Records in September of 2014, and returns in 2017 with a five-song EP, “South Pacific.” The new collection calls to mind a 60’s film soundtrack with lush organs, tribal rhythms, surf and slide guitars. Inspired by old records from Asia, the soundtracks of Martin Denny and Italian and French cinema music of the same era, Lomboy’s music is a more intimate version of these, inviting the listener to daydream of faraway adventures and places in the wild. Lomboy is for listeners into European music inspired by Asian music that has been inspired by American music from the 60’s. Dreamy and languid, their songs are little audio oeuvres d’art: paintings for the ears, but translating hopes, dreams, and emotions on a deeper level.
