Dutch musician and songwriter Lieke Heusinkveld performs as la loye, building layer upon layer of transcendental lo-fi into her beguiling ballads.
Crafted from personal stories, stacked vocals, delicate piano and intricate guitars weave in and out as we're submerged into a dream-like world which is soothing despite the track's more complex history.
Describing the genesis of the song, Heusinkveld explains "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," she continues, "I think the song is a reflection on this particular time where I was just trying to figure that stuff out”.
