LANDE HEKT crafted politically aware, heart-on-sleeve, punchy yet tender, punk-flecked songs with her band Muncie Girls, more recently she turned her hand to an even more personal songwriting approach by writing a solo record – 2021’s Going To Hell. The debut full-length was released via queer and trans run independent label Get Better Records and documented her experience coming out as gay. It set out her stall as a solo artist with supreme storytelling abilities and a knack for understatedly luminous melodies. Lande’s music sits beautifully alongside such artists as The Wedding Present, The Replacements and Sharon Van Etten.
Lande met 2022 armed with a whole new collection of song-form vignettes and musings on her life for her second album House Without a View. This record continued to explore ideas of queer identity, as well as her changing relationship with gender, dealing with childhood trauma, and confronting the isolation and period of adjustment brought by the pandemic. This year Lande Hekt continues her poignant musical introspection with two new singles ‘Pottery Class’ and ‘Axis’. Bittersweet ‘Pottery Class’ captures the feeling of yearning for someone and longing for a space to share with that person. In the song, Lande reflects: “we could move to the city, go to shows and join a pottery class / But you’d always be overwhelmed by everything that moves too fast / I don’t care where we live, I just want you back.”
