After recently relocating to Melbourne, regional Victorian up-and-comer LASHES is today unveiling her second track of the year - the aptly named 'Heavenly'.
The blissfully emotive offering sees LASHES expand on her niche within the electropop sphere, drawing influence from the likes of Porter Robinson, CHVRCHES, Broods, and Lastlings.
"I really like lyrically dense, emotionally driven music, as well as the experimental elements these artists incorporate," says LASHES. "I'm influenced by my own personal experiences and am writing constantly. I find it very therapeutic to sort of purge out my thoughts and feelings onto paper."
"'Heavenly' is a mixed bag of emotions for me. A few years ago, I fell really hard for a friend of mine. It wasn't meant to be, but I felt the most "myself" I'd ever felt when I was around this person, and that was a really difficult thing to let go of. The song is about all of the things that are left unsaid, and all those moments of looking back on the times shared, wondering if they cast you in the same light you cast them in."
'Heavenly' was written and recorded with Jackson McRae (George Alice / Allday), and mixed and mastered by Samuel K Sproull (Japanese Wallpaper / Eliza & the Delusionals) . It follows LASHES' March release 'Luv Is Blind', which was co-written with Northeast Party House's Mitch Ansell and clocked spins on triple j's Good Nights and Home & Hosed, alongside an addition to MTV Australia's playlist for the song's visual accompaniment.
