Consuming with its sincere and contemplative rock sound, “Stuck In A Loop” is a new track from LangstonCo, the project of Jay Langston. Formerly the lead guitarist of nationally touring bands Echovalve and We the Fierce, the Chicago-based artist began LangstonCo as a side project in 2010. The project has re-emerged in the past year, following a several-year hiatus.
“Stuck In A Loop” represents the first single from LangstonCo’s upcoming fourth EP. Bluesy guitar tones lead into an observational lyrical opening: “I have become aware of how fast the world gets beneath my skin,” Langston sings, reminding tonally of Brian Molko’s angsty captivation. Additional guitars complement the “no one will ever know,” vocal soaring, further intensifying the melodic hold. “Look what they’ve done,” Langston continues during a ferocious, hooky bridge, building to a satisfying finale, where vocal echoes and guitar feedback fade.
