PREMIERE - Lachane “Ideal-I” on TinyMixTapes

Introducing Lachane

IMG_6932_v2.jpg

We are proud to introduce our latest artist, Austin based abstract pop duo Lachane. Lead by producer and singer Melissa Cha, Lachane rejects all things upbeat in favor of drudging, half-time rhythms and slowly melting synth and guitar tones. Lachane’s songwriting embraces hopelessness as a method of expressing beauty and has found a compelling union of ominous mood and dense texture. Lachane makes their Holodeck Records debut with the new self-titled album out February 9, 2018 on cassette and digital download.

Melissa Cha has been an established filmmaker with Holodeck, directing music videos for bands like S U R V I V E and Troller. It is our pleasure to bring you Cha's newest video project, this time working for her own band.
