LASTVIOLETS – “Half Past Noon”


“Half Past Noon” is a catchy new single from LASTVIOLETS, the Boston-based duo of Vincent Paz and Evan Taylor. Breezy vocals and jangly guitar tones enamor with a laid-back appeal. The shift past the two-minute turn kickstarts a satiating, emotional guitar-fronted outro, following the serenely twangy introduction with a soaring, expressive enthrallment. The final minute is especially captivating with its raucous guitar emotions and retro-minded bass bounce.

Per the duo, the track’s lyrics “are about a manipulative relationship and how someone can wave certain things in front of you, like sex, in order to get what they want.”
