Carissa Sinnott If I could play a soundtrack for my life it would probably be to Lullatone. Every song is just so magical and uplifting. Favorite track: Hot Sand.

Atelier Sentô We love this record ! It's so creative, colorful, sweet and refreshing. Can't wait for summer when listening to it. Lullatone's music is good for inspiration. Favorite track: Cannonball Splash.

Team Oktopus We thought that our humongous love for Lulatone couldn't become any bigger when, out of nowhere, they release this album containing "Splitting a Banana Split" our favourite duet of all times.

Prediction: Soon Llulatone will release a full ep with vocals on each song and, on that day, every city in the world will have their own rainbows. Favorite track: Splitting a Banana Split.

Hi, Here is new Lullatone EP "Summer Songs"
We think it could be a good soundtrack for:

• ice cold drinks (with foam things around them to keep them extra cool)
• anything by a pool
• just cruising on a skateboard (without too many technical tricks)
• making sun tea
• bonus juice at the bottom of your shaved ice
• itching after sitting in a patch of really really green grass
• making a funny sound while walking around in flip flops
• sweating
• eating dinner outside
• hammock naps
• spraying a friend with a garden hose
• wishing you were wearing more clothes in the freezer section of the supermarket
• pretty much anything involving a backyard - and -
• eating way too much watermelon


released June 11, 2013

Track Name: Splitting a Banana Split
let's split a banana split
I'd really like to get it
for you (and me too)

there's no need to deny it
I know you'd like to try it
so let me buy it for you
(just promise to give half of it to me too)

now of course you can't forget
there are other things we could get
like this red and white and blue popsicle…
that is shaped like a rocket


but today
I must say
that our number one option
is this banana, chocolate and ice cream concoction

don't deny it
let's buy it
there's no need for a diet
so let me supply it to you
just don't forget to give half of it to me too
that's all I ask of you

but I think you must admit
when it comes to banana splits
it is actually quite rare
that you would share
in a way that is fair


but today I do declare
in fact, I solemnly swear
I won't take this one solo
nah… not like a game of solitaire


so let's go
split split
bo bit
banana fana forfeit
your inhibition
to its lack of nutrition

we gotta
split split
bo bit
banana fana forfeit
that disposition
and just give me the permission


Oh please don't make me plead
just take a bite and see
I'm sure that you'll will agree
that splitting this split with me
it's gonna cool down your body
cool you down at least a degree

oh it'd make me so happy
if you'd only split this split with me
