In the realm of Lo Lauren, every season is spooky season, and she proves it with the release of her third single, Monster. The emerging pop sensation, already celebrated by BBC Radio 1 and crowned ‘rack of the Week on BBC Introducing, continues her rise with a track that adds a darkly romantic twist to her impressive pop offering.
Collaborating with Andysocialclub and KIN, Lo Lauren channels her introspective songwriting prowess to delve into the complexities of forbidden love. Inspired by a deeply personal experience that navigates the delicate balance between desire and morality, Monster is a sonic journey marked by Lo Lauren’s signature elements—captivating pop hooks, angsty guitar riffs, and pulsating basslines. It’s an anthem meant to be belted out with unbridled enthusiasm.
With lyrics like “I’d be your homewrecker, bad things I would do / I’d throw away my morals, just to end up with you / Cos maybe heartbreak is a just a forfeit for greater good with you”, Lo Lauren fearlessly explores the moral dilemma of pursuing a love that defies conventional boundaries.
Reflecting on the inspiration behind Monster, Lo Lauren shares, “Monster is about wanting to be with someone that’s already in a relationship – a tricky situation that I personally went through! It’s a true question of morals and being torn over what’s right and wrong – should I break someone else’s heart or my own?“
Monster follows the resounding success of her debut single, Never The One, which earned airtime on BBC Radio, including two spins on Radio 1’s Future Pop show by Mollie King. Abbie McCarthy of BBC Introducing Kent elevated it to Track of the Week, hailing it as “Pop perfection.”
Lo Lauren’s authenticity and vulnerability shine through in Monster, inviting listeners into her emotional world. With Lo Lauren, each release breathes new life into the soundtrack of our lives, infusing it with a fresh and vibrant energy that leaves a lasting impression.
