Panophonic delivers an explosive and densely atmospheric wall of sound that defies the mundane sounds that permeates in the current generic modern rock scene. His latest sonically immersive experience comes to life as the playful and emotional new full-length album Endlessly.
A longtime staple of Philadelphia’s indie rock scene, Tom Lugo’s dark, heartfelt, yet edgy songs and productions are an intricate blend of indie pop songwriting, post-punk aesthetics, shoegaze stylings, and Gothic tendencies. The lyrical content is dark and emotive.
Lugo is also known in the underground circuit for the festivals, shows, tours, and constant work that he does to further the scene on the east coast of the US and abroad. He is the owner of the independent record label Patetico Recordings, the mastermind behind the Popnoise Festival, as well as being involved in a variety of musical projects that include indie rock band Stellarscope, dream-pop project MAYU, and more.
Endlessly was almost lost and not released when, after almost a year of recording, Lugo experienced a computer and back-up hard drive crash which left him with only one option; starting the entire process anew. Never one to let circumstances get the better of him, Lugo rerecorded all of the songs and instrumentation and the end result is one of the best albums he has created.
Endlessly explores the blossoming of a new relationships and the lament of others lost along the way; the balance between darkness and light that lives inside of all of us. “Endlessly is about this new chapter in my life. When I thought that all that was left for me was loss and pain I found new inspiration and a reason to smile again,” Lugo says.
Endlessly releases today, February 13th, via Patetico Recordings and The Big Takeover is excited to premiere the vivid and captivating album in full.
