Seattle is already one of our favorite cities, but the Emerald City is also home to the rising outfit Dead Lakes, which might definitely be your new favorite band with their new single "tongue planet."

We've had the song on repeat for days and we're premiering the new track today as the band has given Variance the first listen along with a cinematic set of visuals. The song, which is officially out tomorrow on all streaming platforms, is a very relatable reminder of how things don't always go as planned, and sometimes you just need to roll with the punches and grappled with what life hands out.

“’tongue planet’ sort of came out of nowhere at a time during the pandemic where I think everyone was wondering if we should even do this anymore,” says the band's drummer Chon of the new single. “There were things that everyone was either attached to or fed up with that needed to get put to rest with this song.”

The song is from Dead Lakes' upcoming first album daydreamer, which is out on March 31 via SharpTone Records.

Says singer Sumy: “From the jump, daydreamer puts you in the driver's seat of the story. This record constantly blurs the line between reality and daydream, both sonically and lyrically. We wanted to extend that energy to this record by giving you a mix of what you’d expect from us with a surreal fresh energy and perspective. The result ended up being a sonic journey of sound and emotion. This record runs parallel with the ride of life. The gut-wrenching moments, self-doubt, relationships, vices, and the feeling of euphoria.”
