The weather is getting warmer, the sun is out longer and summer is right around the corner. That only means one thing.
It’s time for those summertime playlists.
Perfectly curating your playlist is hard. There are lots of options. You want something that’s easy to sing along to, but you don’t want too many radio hits. (Or maybe you do, we don’t judge.) Anyway, finding those perfect songs isn’t the easiest thing in the world. But we’re going to help you get started.
“Scars” is the latest single from indie-rock band L.O.U.D. (Living On Universal Denial). It may not be a happy song, but it’s a catchy song. And more than anything, it’s relatable.
The band originated in Athens, Greece but they currently reside in London. There are five of them (KK, Simon, Jim, Tolis and Jo) and while they all grew up playing and studying music, their paths didn’t cross until 2015. Their first single, “We Get Away,” was released in 2018.
So, in a strange juxtaposition that still effortlessly keeps the same indie sound they established in their first song, L.O.U.D. has managed to capture an array of emotions. In their first single, they hit that pop-centered, radio-catered, joyful sound. But, in “Scars,” the reach greater depth.
“It’s a statement on relationships and how people are bounded by society’s rules within marriage and family,” said the band.
“Scars” is emotional, which lead singer KK depicts perfectly in his performance. His vocals, the high point of the song, convey everything the listener feels in the song.
Even though music from L.O.U.D. has been slow to come, the band hasn’t shown any signs of quitting. With two solid, entertaining singles under their belt, we are excited to see what this new band brings next. So, roll your windows down, turn the music up and enjoy your new favorite band.
