Minneapolis-based band The Von Tramps has a new song and an accompanying single out today. The single, entitled “Lo Mein” is off band’s upcoming sophomore album, GO, which will be out in March via SBAM Records. You can pre-order the album today!
Band member Jenna Enemy had the following to say about the new song:
“We were looking to expand our sound and thought we could incorporate some really awesome electronic elements into this album, which is something we haven’t done before. Chelsea and I were exploring a ton of influences like The Police, Madonna, Jamaican dancehall music and English dance records in addition to all of the artists and genres we already love. We created this dream-like world for the song “Lo Mein” where the genres could all blend.
The song begins to unpack how to handle success when and if you get it. It starts a bit melancholy narrating a failing love story in which one partner doesn’t see themselves fitting in this person’s aspirations or dream world and has left them to dream away alone. The truth is their love is very much a part of the dream world, and without them life just wouldn’t be a dream come true. The video created a digital dream world with the live-action Von Tramps exploring it. I can’t spoil all of the surprises, but watch for: checker print, a hound dog, a giant blimp, and of course old Lo Mein.”
