You heard it here first… LØLØ is an emerging artist you need to keep your eyes on this year. With a newfound alternative rock sound, this Toronto native is letting her true colors shine through gritty guitars and booming percussion. Without further ado, we invite you to headbang along to LØLØ’s edgy new single, “death wish.”
On “death wish,” LØLØ reflected,
“I was five years old when I accidentally killed Goldy, my first (of many) goldfish. I remember being absolutely heartbroken, knowing that it was MY FAULT that my new friend was gone forever. Ever since then, I’ve noticed quite an unfortunate pattern in my life. When I was a kid, it was goldfish, but now that I’m all ‘grown up,’ my knack for killing things has escalated to relationships. Every time I start to feel like I might be in love, it always ends up just like Goldy – in the toilet.”
Evoking the best of pop punk, “death wish” gets us hyped for what’s to come next from LØLØ. While she exposes her self-sabotaging habits, “death wish” has LØLØ warning potential lovers to proceed with caution. To top it off, the accompanying visual offers an electric, rock ‘n’ roll performance of “death wish,” and we even get to see a replica of the goldfish that inspired this fantastic cut.
“I used to always think it was the guy’s fault, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I might actually be the one to blame, thanks to my impeccable ability to self-sabotage. So believe it or not, in my own twisted way, ‘death wish’ is actually a love song — but with a very clear disclaimer: LOVE ME AT YOUR OWN RISK.”
