If you’ve made more imaginary friends this year than you did during your entire childhood, then join the club. As part of your induction ceremony, here’s Kidsmoke’s “Layla’s Love,” a shoegazy pop piece that feels perfect for any kind of romantic and heartbreaking conversation with your imaginary partners. Lyrically, it taps into the what-if moments that we all encounter in any kind of relationship. Enjoy:
On the new single, vocalist/guitarist Lance shared: “I’m a big fan of Prefab Sprout* and love the way they utilise the male/female vocals; a dream-like section, when the main character is having an imaginary conversation with ‘Layla’ is my favourite moment on the album.”
The track is from the band’s upcoming album A Vision in the Dark, which will be out on June 19th.
*Prefab Sprout are British pop band from the 80s
