i only hear you in my song
to live underwater
i'm still asleep
The gray layered alt-folk by la loye is often described as lo-fi or unpolished, but secretly the project around songwriter Lieke Heusinkveld is layered with beautiful details in both sound and word.
la loye does not explore the beaten track of human consciousness, but wanders along the exciting elephant paths, dark sprawl and beautiful open plains. Just like Elliott Smith, Mount Eerie, Radiohead and Big Thief, Heusinkveld digs deep in her reserves to give shape to raw emotion with fresh, sometimes very playful angles. At times oppressive music, but above all beautiful.
