Video Premiere: Rnie – ‘Toss’ & Tour Announcement

Posted: by admin

Rnie, is the project of Lamont Brown (who also plays in Triathlon and previously in It Looks Sad). Personally, I believe Lamont is one of the most talented songwriters on this godforsaken Earth. His older tracks are hard to find outside of his SoundCloud page, but they are true gems from the first thing he wrote.

His Figi Afterglow EP was hypnotic and entrancing in its lyrical and rhythmic dexterity. His followup Dog Park EP was similarly addicting, but then he began to shift into even more experimental sonic boundaries. On his new debut LP, citrus,  which was released a few months ago, Rnie folds itself into layers of hazy tones. Tucked up inside this blanket, Lamont is able to deliver his poetic lyrics in a way that sinks deeply into the listener.

If you haven’t already listened to citrus,  I suggest you do that now, but we are also premiering a short video for a b-side from that record along with a sick tour announcement. Check out the New York vibing video below, and then peep the tour dates. This is 100% a show worth attending. Get on the bandwagon.
