Download New Music: Lauv – Drugs & the Internet
Lauv comes through with a brand new smashing single track entitled “Drugs & the Internet“. The singer-songwriter launched his new era on Thursday (April 25) with the single “Drugs & The Internet,” and it’s a far cry from, say, the lovestruck sweetness of “I Like Me Better.”
“Drugs” is a total sonic adventure; it begins as a melancholy piano ballad, then warps into a bass-heavy banger that’s equal parts sad and self-deprecating. “I don’t want to base my actions or reactions on the things they say / And I don’t want to hit delete on all the parts of me that they might hate,” he sings, before lamenting on the hook, “I traded all my friends for drugs and the internet / Ah, shit.”
The track comes to life in a Black Mirror-esque video that serves as a cautionary tale about getting sucked into social media. Lauv and director Jenna Marsh illustrate that concept of emotional disappearance by literally trapping him inside an online world, where everything isn’t as it seems. Check it out below, and try not to get creeped out by the pair of hairless cats roaming around. The sprouting singer is highly excited for the release. He, in fact, shared posts on Twitter and Instagram, announcing his upcoming single. The LA boy has stated his expectations for the song. This is the kind of song(s) you wouldn’t want to miss on your playlist.
