Lara by Blanco Tranco

Darkenin Heart

Lara serves as the third preview from the upcoming EP, Get Back to Me When It's Over, by Australian band, Blanco Tranco. Lara builds upon a foundation of post punk influences, and explores a more somber side of the band's style.

According to Blanco Tranco vocalist Tiff: "I wrote the vocals for Lara at the very beginning of lockdown when everything still seemed so up and the air and even kind of exciting. My boyfriend at the time was living in this hellish sharehouse in St Kilda where I was camping out half the time to avoid lock in with my parents. The walls were completely covered in graf and collages and were deeply ingrained with the smell of musty weed, piss and cigarettes. This felt like a huge contrast from what I was used to at home and my relationship with him felt very similar — messy, melodramatic, slightly uncomfortable but new. He left me alone in the house one night with his spooky housemates and hidden in his bedroom these lyrics were born. I think mostly out of this feeling of vulnerability and whether or not I could actually be who I was trying to be for this guy."

Lara showcases a heartfelt vocal performance, and finds the group skillfully exploring a new direction while remaining faithful to their fundamental sound and aesthetic.
