Loney, Dear

What is the story behind your pseudonym, Loney, Dear?

I felt like a lone music maker. The name implies that someone is noticing you. Right now it probably more a rest from something in the past, but has on the other side more moved into just being a name, and my own name. I'm pretty amazed by its strangeness every now and then. I wanted an odd name, just like I want the music to be.

Loney Dear's new album Dear John came out on 1/27 via Polyvinyl. Now on tour with Andrew Bird, LD played two shows in Brooklyn on Saturday (1/31). Around 4PM he played a free short set at the soon-to-be-extinct Sound Fix. Later that night he/they headlined Union Hall. Harlem Shakes side project, Arms, opened that show.
