It’s been nearly a year since La Loye (Lieke Heusinkveld) released her debut ‘To Live Underwater’ but the Dutch artist now returns with I’m Still Asleep. With layered vocals and a lush yet intimate ambiance, I’m Still Asleep is a beautifully understated piece that captures Heusinkveld’s uncertainty. On the inspiration, La Loye says:

“As a teen I was always searching for any sort of buzz: going out, roaming the city with friends, that sort of thing. Even though I seemed to enjoy most of it, there would always be this underlying sense of sorrow. It could really catch me off guard as I didn’t really understand where it came from or what to do with it. I think the song is a reflection on this particular time where I was just trying to figure that stuff out.”
