Prolific nu-disco and electronic producer Louis La Roche has released his latest track, ‘Better (feat. Lucy Pearson)’ via his own imprint Ever After Records. The single, premiered via Magnetic Magazine, is a harbinger for his upcoming album, Saturday Night Griever. La Roche’s label has released music from artists such as Crystal Bats, Winnie Williams and Call Me Loop.
Arriving with harsh lyrics, the sentiment of a breakup song carries through from the beginning. However, there is a strong contrast between lyrics and beats as the funky synths resonating throughout the track.
“It doesn’t matter what you have to say
‘Cos your lies all sound the same
You’ve had your fun now watch me walk away
Only got yourself to blame”
Louis La Roche explains:
“The demo was written in 2017. I sang the first verse, bridge and chorus (I still have it somewhere). I sent the song over to Lucy and she sent it back with all my parts re-sung as well as a second verse and middle 8, plus all the lovely stacked vocal harmonies. With a lot of the album tracks, they started out as me humming or singing ideas over my instrumentals and the collaborator really understanding where it needed to be taken, to help with my vision.”
