Lauren Waller has made a decent name for herself in the music industry. This Los Angles based pop artist uses emotion and poetry to create her lyrics for her dark 1980’s meets modern electronic pop sound.
Lauren has shared new singles that mark a stepping stone in Lauren’s arc as a growing writer and singer; Lauren’s has entered this enlightened era with both confidence and swagger in her singles titled “Night Stalker” and “Best Coast.” “Night Stalker” is a sickly-sweet pop single featuring an edgy beat and sinister lyrics that are punctuated with slasher-esque references and harmonies. Between the lyrics, the melodies, and the production: Night Stalker melds culturally relevant, chilling horror with an up-tempo urban dance track. “Best Coast” is a summer anthem highlighting the party lifestyle that some know all too well in California. The lyrics poke fun with a fresh take on party culture. “Best Coast” is reminiscent of catchy 2000s hip hop and pure pop. The beats and production make “Best Coast” catchy, danceable, and relatable because we all know that in California, we like to party.
Her new single “Dopamine,” released January 21st, is a dark and textured pop song about a failed love story. With a sound like that of Katy Perry’s “ET” and vocals like Ingrid Michaelson, “Dopamine” gives catchy electronic riffs and genius hooks. She sings about “..fell in love with the idea of falling for a stranger.” The beat grabs your soul and it feels both dissonant, yet resonant, almost like the music makes us feel like we are on the outside looking in, rather being immersed within it.
“Dopamine” reveals Lauren’s unique style, vocal range, and her powerful storytelling through showing and not telling. Lauren Waller is an artist to look out for.
