Ever since their stage debut in late 2021, German-American art punk band LAWN CHAIR have relentlessly rehearsed, recorded and played shows, including appearances at showcase festivals such as Reeperbahn and Waves Vienna. The band, fronted by Seattle-born Claudia Schlutius, has quickly gained recognition in the German indie scene with a guitar-driven energetic sound, Schlutius’ powerful stage presence and meticulous songwriting.
After releasing a self-produced debut EP in the spring of 2022, LAWN CHAIR returned to the studio in the autumn to record their follow-up. Eat The Beans And Wear The Jeans! was recorded with the help of esteemed producer Olaf Opal (The Notwist) and L.A.-based mixer Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands, TV On The Radio), who helped take the songs to the next level. The new songs present a new and interesting twist to timeless topics like unrequited love, the despondent boredom growing up in the countryside and the hardships of show business. With this new EP LAWN CHAIR are underscoring their rightful ambitions to a much larger audience.
New single ‘Sunset Heartbreak’ tells the story of a rural laggard who is constantly pitying himself and blaming everything but his own shortcomings. The song is packed with lethargic resentment and intense longing for that long lost love all wrapped in catchy guitar riffs and cowbell goodness.
Eat The Beans And Wear The Jeans!, due out April 28th, refines the band’s own blend of indie and punk rock, adding wavy atmospheres, jangly country guitars and the occasional synthesizer to the raw and powerful sound the band is known for.
