Los Angeles singer-songwriter Lauren Hulbert is releasing a new single ‘Honeydew’ which we’re delighted to premiere today right here on Backseat Mafia. The track, out on Monday, is taken from her forthcoming EP ‘Superbloom’ which drops on October 30th, and was written whilst living with her ex-boyfriend in Ecuador, renting a house in Quito after travelling for months.
Of the song Lauren says “I wanted to capture the sweetness of uncomplicated new love that feels effortless and innocently childlike. When someone feels like the perfect fit with room to easily grow together and the excitement that goes along with that potential. I think what stands out most about this recording is the effective use of accompaniment for translating those emotions into sounds; the synth in particular permeates my mind and sense of touch with a magical essence.”
With this breezy part picked / part strummed guitar acting as chief accompaniment, Lauren’s vocal is the thing that catches you, her voice as beautiful and clear as the melody is runs over. as it unfurls, so splashes of synth and this simple drum pattern join, but nothing gets in the way of the beautiful and hopeful sentiment of the track.
