The Little Lord Street Band Reveal New Single, ‘Time And Place’ + Announce New Album

Embracing the dusty trails and sun-soaked melodies of the Australian outback, The Little Lord Street Band, the cherished Alt-Country/Indie Folk-Rock ensemble hailing from Western Australia, has set the stage for an exhilarating musical journey with their upcoming sophomore album, ‘Time And Place,’ slated for release on April 22nd. Leading the charge, they’ve unveiled the soul-stirring title track, a harmonious blend of laid-back rhythms and heartfelt lyrics, offering a poignant glimpse into the corridors of bygone years.

As the release of their new single and album approaches, 2024 marks a significant milestone for The Little Lord Street Band, as they celebrate a decade of musical journeying. Over these ten years, they’ve woven their tales into the fabric of Australian music, carving out a niche all their own while witnessing the ebb and flow of life’s tide. With each chord struck and every lyric penned, their forthcoming album stands as a testament to their evolution, brimming with melodies that echo the laughter and tears of their past. With ‘Time And Place,’ they not only capture the essence of who they are but also raise a toast to the adventures yet to come, signalling the promise of another glorious decade ahead.

In perfect harmony with the album’s overarching themes, the title track serves as a heartfelt meditation on the twists and turns of life’s winding road, artfully blending the band’s introspective lyricism with their trademark alt-country soundscapes. Crafted during an inspired APRA songwriting session alongside esteemed collaborators Matt Busby (of Busby Marou fame) and Jimmy Davis, this track delves deep into the longing for purpose, painting a vivid portrait against the canvas of suburban existence.

With Natasha Shanks at the helm, her soul-stirring vocals weave effortlessly through twanging guitar riffs and soulful slide melodies, creating a tapestry of sound that transports listeners to the heart of a timeless country-blues saga. The song’s genuine country-style instrumentation and poignant storytelling serve as a beacon, igniting feelings of nostalgia, wanderlust, and a serene sense of contentment, inviting all who listen to embark on a musical journey through the dusty trails of memory and emotion.

“‘Time And Place’ is a love song about wanting to get back on the road to find purpose amidst life in the suburbs, it’s about longing for something that’s out of reach, yet finding solace in the memories and experiences that shape who we are.” – Natasha Shanks.

Spanning from upbeat road-tripping country rock anthems to introspective porch tales, the 11-track album delves deep into the intricate tapestry of life, serving as a poignant journey through its myriad highs and lows.

“‘Time And Place’ is a ‘looking back’ albumIt’s about when you get to that point in your life and you look back on what’s happened or what’s been going on. It’s that sort of longing for something that you can’t have back. It’s quite glass half empty, but at the same time, it’s about enjoying your memories.” – Jimmy Rogers.

Pre-orders for digital, CD, and vinyl copies of ‘Time And Place’ are available now, with the full album set to release on Monday, April 22 – pre-order here | pre-save here.
