“Like Syd Barrett through some 90’s grunge filter” - Tony Presedo (Tee Pee Records Founder)
“Raw power contained just enough. These are real songs for future movies” - (Joe Foster, Creation Records, Poppydisk)
“They are the best live band in LA.” - Dave D
LANTVRN became real when I recorded a demo called “Danger Is Needed Sometimes”. This chaotically troubled lady who lived with Dave D (Brian Jonestown Massacre’s ex manager) had been asking about my music. I gave it to her and told her I wrote it for her. She didn’t believe me, but later that night she called me and was ecstatic. “Wait, did you really write this song about me, were you joking?” I said “I don’t joke about love”. She booked our ﬁrst show at Three Clubs in Hollywood opening for Jason Simon (Dead Meadow).
Q. How do you describe LANTVRN´ sounds?
TD: It’s Folklore. Ha. We have a hard time describing Lantvrn but we can give you a list of nouns to describe it. it’s definitely droney, moody, heavy and chaotic at times and also spooky, melodic and very minimalist at other times. They’re songs to listen to rather than have on in the background.
