Listen Laundromat unveils new single ‘Gloss’

He’s supporting Future Islands on their tour later this year.

Following the release of ‘En Bloc’, the vinyl/digital release encompassing all three of his EPs to date, Laundromat - aka Toby Hayes - is sharing his new single ‘Gloss’.

“The initial idea for this tune sort of fell out of the sky and onto my lap,” Toby says. “I was feeling it immediately, so I quickly recorded the bass part on my phone to make sure I didn’t forget it. When I listened back, it had a really cool energy so I ended up using it in the final mix. Maybe I’ll record bass with my phone from now on. I was hoping to get someone else to mix this, but ended up getting too into it, so this is another frantic DIY ‘gaffa tape mix.’ I also really love Josie’s voice, she brings something very special to the project. Lyrically, Gloss is mostly about denial, more screen time than is healthy (seems to be a running theme at the moment), and the warped perspective that comes with that. Everyone I speak to is still very much picking up the pieces…like we’re all spectators to some fantastic shit-show…”
