"A genius" - Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote) 

"An icon of the Australian scene" - Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio) 

"He's like a human centipede sewn out of all the greatest musicians from the past 80 years" - Liam Pieper (Beat Magazine) 

He’s back! Lachlan Mitchell aka Laneous (of funk group Kafka + Laneous & The Family Yah) has announced his solo debut in the form of single ‘Modern Romance’. His own nuanced take on 21st century courting and commitment, ‘Modern Romance’ comes double barrel with an accompanying clip starring Gyton Grantley (Underbelly) that features everything from yogis, cellos, a juggalo, steaks, bandages, chains and a cucumber. 

Written and recorded with his own superb musical romance the track features producer and bassist, Paul Bender, keyboardist, Simon Mavin (both of grammy nominated Hiatus Kaiyote and Swooping Duck), Donny Stewart on vibraphone and Hudson Whitlock (The Cactus Channel) on drums. It’s classic Laneous; raw but smooth, honey vocals, vintage charm, modern snap and incomparable melodic sensibility.
