SoCal alt-pop duo The Lagoons introduce their brand-new single, “Dial Tones (Voicemail),” a shimmering electro-pop song conjuring up the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Explaining the track, The Lagoons share, “Ultimately, it's about finding yourself. Whether it's being stuck on something from the past, reminiscing about something that is no more or refusing to move on, inaction will not resolve this lack of fulfilment. "It's about the battle between passively hoping your prayers will be answered versus going out and finding answers.”
They go on to add, “It's OK to be curious and question things you're unsure about. Your actions will help create the change you want to see in yourself. Don't wait around for things to happen or come your way. It’s easy to become complacent and caught up in trying to relive our memories. Hopefully, this song helps people take steps towards moving forward into an uncertain future.”
Made up of brothers Joey Selan (lead vocals, keyboards, saxophone) and Ryan Selan (guitar, bass, vocals), The Lagoons broke through in 2016 with the release of their debut single, “California,” amassing 50 million streams. They followed with two EPs, Gems and Escape, and then last year released their debut album, Midnight Afternoon.
“Dial Tones (Voicemail)” opens on low-slung percolating colours and cashmere vocals. A deliciously bewitching saxophone imbues the tune with soft, wistful textures as the silky harmonies give the lyrics a luscious, dreamy mood, diffusing a spellbinding sensation perfect for warm summer nights.
