Bio

Perth up-and-comers Lorne Vincent and Boox Kid (Jarrad Wall) join forces on the silky new indie pop tune, Couldn’t Stay - set to be released on Friday the 9th of October.
Couldn’t Stay showcases the best of both artists coupling Lorne’s floating vocals and emotive songwriting with Jarrad’s electronic soundscape approach to pop production. The sound is lush, dreamy and trans- portive taking cues from the likes of Flume, Safia, Miike Snow and Bon Iver.
"I had met Jarrad (Boox Kid) through a tour we were on in Singapore a few years back with our previous band, and we’d always kept in touch. Jarrad came around to my studio with his laptop and hard drive, with the aim of playing each other what we’d been upto musically and seeing if anything could collide and we could do a colab" - Lorne Vincent
Couldn’t Stay explores a toxic relationship, touching on feelings of entrapment - the track echoes the hardships of knowing you need to leave but feeling like you can’t. Both Jarrad and Lorne aimed to create something emotive and moody yet soaring.
"I messed around creating the robotic sounding tone in the bridge vocals for a long time, there’s something about that synthesized vocal sound that almost sounds sadder and more emotive than an actual human voice" - Lorne Vincent
Following the release of Couldn’t Stay , Lorne will continue gaining momentum with a third single, produced by renowned WA songwriter/producer Nathan Gaunt. If you’re a Perth local you can catch Lorne at Leederville Songwriters Club on Tuesday Oct 27th.

I like the way you've trickled in the piano, the strings, the pickup of the percussion. very pretty indeed.

Love the way your Australian accent peeks out through the layered vocals on this wavy little thing
