Laveda follows up last months ‘Ghost’ with L off of their forthcoming album, ‘What Happens After’. Originally recorded with a more upbeat tempo, the New Yorkers slowed it down and injected it with an 80’s tinted cinematic sheen. With its gleaming wall of sound, spiralling guitars, and dual vocals, Laveda opens up about modern love and the proliferation of dating apps and the gnawing anxiety and insecurities that come with them.
The duo further explained saying:
“We intended this song to be more about what it makes you feel, rather than having an actual meaning. I wanted to reflect my generation’s approach to love, one where sex is scarily available with just a few taps on your phone and it’s cooler not to give a shit then actually be vulnerable. I think most young people really do want to be loved properly. This fashionable idea that love shouldn’t be fragile or imperfect and how it’s seen as a weakness by many is extremely damaging and makes life that much more difficult to maneuver through.
