Brighton song-writer La Lune has released her ear-melting new single ‘Love/Sick’, which you can listen to below. We’ve been keeping track of this elusive newcomer since she shared her debut EP Bliss with us in February, and her latest offering is equally as dreamy.
La Lune’s material is mainly autobiographical, but on ‘Love/Sick’ she approached songwriting from a different angle. “I was giving a friend of mine some advice, as they were having relationship-troubles,” La Lune explains. “They said to me, ‘we’ve got a lot to undo’ and that phrase really stuck with me and inspired the chorus of the song (we often joke that I should give them lyric credits). I think ‘Love/Sick’ sounds a bit different to what I’ve released before, which was my intention. I wanted the subject matter to be kind of sad, but to juxtapose this with a relatively upbeat song. I really like it when songs do that.”
Inspired by the likes of The Japanese House, Lorde, James Blake & Bon Iver, La Lune has been creating her own music for just over a year. ‘Love/Sick’ marks a more “summery” direction for the songwriter, but her sharp production skills ensure she’s still creating her trademark understated, cleanly produced sounds.
