London-based newcomer Lo Lauren swirls us into the vicious cycle of toxic relationships and moves on from it in true cinematic fashion in her latest single “Easier.” It’s chest-swelling pop with shimmering synths that inundates you with cathartic bursts, making it the perfect adrenalin booster to dump that loser and move on. But despite this badassery, there is an emotional admittance of the pain that comes with leaving any relationship – even the bad ones. Hit play:
Speaking of the release, she shared:
“I wrote ‘Easier’ on the keyboard in my bedroom during lockdown and it’s a song about the vicious cycle in toxic relationships and realising your worth. When you keep on going back to someone cos you feel so attached to them, like an addiction, this song is that moment where you start to understand that the more you do that the harder it is to walk away.
I sent it to an amazing production duo called Brave New Audio who really brought the track to life and I recorded my vocals with my long-term collaborator, wenyoukno. It was mixed by an amazing mixer called Darren Heelis (Sam Smith, Mae Muller) and mastered by Kevin Tuffy out of Alchemy who’s worked on records for Headie One, Sinead Harnett, JC Stewart and more.”
Although Lo Lauren was a child of the 00s, she grew up listening to a lot of 80s music like Madonna, Stock Aitken Waterman, Sister Sledge, and Dexy Midnight Runners. She started songwriting at the age of 17 and is a student of Musical Theatre at the BRIT school. “Easier” is her third single and a glimpse into what the gal has in store for us.
