Laveda、'Surprise'のMVを公開

Valentina Rameirez

ニューヨーク州オールバニー拠点のドリームポップバンド Lavedaが、9/2にPaperCup Musicからリリースしたニューシングル 'Surprise'のMVを公開!

ディレクターは Ali Genevich。

Lavedaは Jacob Brooks, Ali Genevichのデュオとして始まり、ライブ時は Dan Carr, Joe Tauroneを加えたフルバンドとして活動してます。

2020年5月というかなり厳しい時期にデビューアルバム『What Happens After』を発表し、それでも注目を集めたバンドで、今回の新曲は近日発売予定のニューアルバム収録曲です。

この時期になると'Summertime'をよく聴くので The Sundaysを思い出したり、Ringo Deathstarr, Alvvaysから、Soccer Mommy, Beabadoobeeまで、おすすめできる層が広いバンドだと思います。それにしても下に書いた今月1日から始まったツアーのガチっぷりもすごい。

 

“I got out of bed super early one morning with a melody that I heard in a dream. I immediately took to garage band on my phone and made a little loop in maybe 15-20 minutes. After I showed Jake he totally wanted to develop it more so we transferred it into logic and finished a demo. Sonically, Surprise is the bright and happy song of the record. Lyrically it embodies a lot of my personal feelings that came after I graduated from college in the same year the pandemic hit. I couldn’t help but feel low for a while. Once I came out of my writer’s block everything I wrote either had this big sad mood or it was super nostalgic. The majority of tracking for the album was done while we stayed on a ranch in Altadena CA (which is about 30 min outside of Los Angeles). I think it was a very therapeutic process and helped us find some new meaning in a lot of the songs, it definitely did for Surprise.” - Ali Genevich
