Lande Hekthas announced that her second solo albumHouse Without a View will be releasedSeptember 23 via Get Better Records (with her new venturePrize Sunflower Records doing the honors in the UK). The announcement comes alongside the release of its first single"Gay Space Cadets," resolute in its guitar-driven and jangly indie rock. Lande says of the alternatively aspirational track: “It’s a daydreaming song about wanting a life of excitement and adventure rather than a dull and ordinary life - one where people underestimate you and belittle you. And where you’re forced to buy into capitalism and become a pathetic, losing player in a game that you hate. I’d rather escape and live in a queer space fantasy and be brave.”
Lande Hekt’s natural state of being is in the writing of a song. Having crafted politically aware, heart-on-sleeve, punchy yet tender, punk-flecked songs with her bandMuncie Girls, Lande turned her hand to an even more personal songwriting approach as she embarked on writing a solo record - 2021’sGoing to Hell. The debut full-length documented her experience coming out as gay. It set out her stall as a solo artist with supreme storytelling abilities and a knack for understatedly luminous melodies. Lande’s music sits beautifully alongside such essential artists as The Wedding Present, The Sundays, The Replacements, Sleeper, and Sharon Van Etten.
