When we over-interpret things the very spark of that which intrigues us is almost all but removed. Loner Lawrence is the collective alter ego of producer duo Tim and Kaim, somewhat tentatively called into existence in March 2020 upon their self-released debut-album ‘Anathema is Easy’.
We have a long history of joint musical experimentation. This stretches back to founding a short-lived guitar-based post-punk outfit, to recording experimental noise-rock tracks on a Tascam Portastudio in Kaim’s dingy little apartment under the guise of “Lost Tapes”. We fondly reflect back on these times, the adolescent optimism in our first strides of musical independence, all the while we were trying to recreate the dark sounds of desperation captured in “Deathconsciousness”, a record which intrigued us for its unsettling honesty. In the meantime, our musical focus has shifted more towards electronic composition, but the joy of experimentation still remains the same today as it did then and probably is the only constant that defines Loner Lawrence. In 2020 we whimsically released our debut album “Anathema is Easy”. In its essence it is no more than a documentation of life-transitions, some heartbreaking, some rejoicing, and all framed within a deep running musical and intellectual friendship narrating the work. We believe the music we make reflects the creative relationship we have nurtured over the years, and the unseen (and unheard) process behind our published work is important, it is what makes the up and coming album “Parochial Living” special for us. Over the last year we have exchanged much thought, deliberated, discussed and considered, to create a piece of work which captures a sense of the space we have been in throughout the process. We look forward to sharing our album!
