LALCHAND

Australian Guitar - - Fresh Frets -

IT IS

the solo project of Mel­bourne artist Jor­dan Lalchand, who af­ter years of ses­sion work and per­form­ing with bands, has stepped away to make his mark in his own bold and beau­ti­ful way. Cur­rently work­ing to­ward the re­lease of his de­but EP in 2020, Lalchand runs with a very in­trigu­ing slo­gan – that he’s a “mu­sic-mak­ing Malaysian Mel­bour­nian”.

HE SOUNDS LIKE

a whole damn lot. Mu­si­cally, Lalchand draws on many in­flu­ences – that much is clear, but it’s the re­source­ful­ness and imag­i­na­tion of his ar­range­ments that flaunt his tal­ents as a solo mu­si­cian. Tri­umph and de­lib­er­a­tion are sen­sa­tions of­ten stirred by Lalchand’s mu­sic.

YOU’LL DIG HIM IF YOU LIKE

Kar­nivool, Al­ter Bridge, A Per­fect Cir­cle, Dead Let­ter Cir­cus, The But­ter­fly Ef­fect… The list goes on! Ul­ti­mately, there’s no nu­ance oc­cu­pied in any of Lalchand’s work that you won’t be able to gel with. The in­tri­ca­cies of his ar­range­ments come at full flavour with much to be taken away.

YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT

lat­est sin­gle “Feast”, fea­tur­ing vo­cals from Ryan Wil­son and an ac­co­lade of lo­cal tal­ent. Lalchand pulls on the ap­ti­tudes of many other fan­tas­tic mu­si­cians, who ex­e­cute in­tri­cate rum­bles and vari­ants in rhythm, and de­velop a sense of seep­ing colour that just ex­plodes off the spec­trum.
