The Ladybug Transistor will release their new album Clutching Stems on June 7 and will hit the road beginning June 29 in New Haven, CT to bring you the new songs live! More tour dates will be added soon.
Clutching Stems is a lush collection of potent refrains and brought-to-one’s-knees ballads. Set to an invigorated soundtrack of wave-pop arrangements, the songs detail stories of humbling heartbreak, profound longing, undoing distress, nagging regret, and coming-of-age awakenings. Olson’s lyrics express an overarching search to find one’s voice in the face of moments that knock the wind and words right out of a person.
