Lauv – The Other

We’ll make it simple: Lauv‘s debut single The Other is one of the most exciting song we’ve heard this year. Classical pop songwriting built around piano chords that meets electronic percussion and R&B beats: pure gold for our ears. The whole song – especially the chorus – is deeply emotional: Ari Leff’s bittersweet voice is perfect in emphasizing the inner struggle that is fought during a break up, when it seems that everything is going well, but you still don’t feel it right for you.
