LAVEDA offer another glimpse into their glimmering second album with new single ‘F***’

A windows down, wind-in-your-hair, late night drive-worthy track, ‘F***’ sees Laveda perfecting their ansty and ethereal brand of dream-pop while tapping into the agitations and anxieties of young adulthood.

Blending chiffon shoegaze rhythms with propulsive ‘90s-tinged guitars and distant drums, the new cut builds gently to its shimmering conclusion like a college coming-of-age story that sees a disillusioned protagonist defeat their adversaries to come out on top. 

Vocalist Ali Genevich explains: “By my second year of college, I knew I wanted to write, record and perform music all the time. I had a heavy load of requirements for my music degree, so it felt like school was just this big delay to actually starting the career I envisioned. By my fourth year I was completely checked out.

“College felt like high school part two to me. I thought most people would have grown out of the desire to be in cliques and look up to whoever was popular by age 19, but I realised that some people never do. I watched a few friends go through some toxic relationships. It was a perfect breeding ground for sh**ty dudes to prey on naive girls. I wished I could make all the bad people disappear so they couldn’t drag down the ones I cared about with them.”

Reminiscent of Soccer Mommy, NewDad, Snail Mail or beabadoobee, ‘F***’ follows Laveda’s earlier sun drenched single ‘Surprise’, both of which will feature on the band’s much anticipated second LP A Place We Grew Up In – due April 2023.
