Having recently announced her second solo album, House Without a View, Lande Hekt is revealing another track from the record. "Backstreet Snow" is a song written at a time when we were all stuck inside and learning to live with being isolated, not doing the things we’ve always enjoyed. Lande says of not being able to play shows in particular,“I struggled to understand where my place was when I couldn’t play music with friends and be active within a scene. I also felt so lucky during the pandemic and lockdown. I lived with someone who loves me and had everything I needed, despite coming pretty close a few times to having no money at all. I honestly don’t know how some people coped at all, and it’s so sad that I guess some people didn’t.” 

The albumHouse Without a View will be released September 23 viaGet Better Records, with her new venturePrize Sunflower Records doing the honors in the UK. The LP announcement came 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 will tour Canada (for the first time) supporting Laura Jane Grace in September, and she’s also announced a headline tour of the UK in November.
