Laveda: Clean

Laveda, the steadily developing dreampop duo from New York City, have released an elegant and dark-bent new single. Clean is part of the band's anticipated second album, A Place You Grew Up In.

Laveda try their hand at the darker side of dreampop, and the mesmerizing result certainly succeeds. Solemn melodies remain viable and create a gloomy, yet tuneful environment which serves as the song's base.

The song is a forlorn perception on the obstacles, challenges and harsh realities that come with aging. Regarding Clean, vocalist Ali Genevich confesses: “I think for the first time I truly realised that growing up was an inevitable fate. It’s such a strange thing, knowing you’re only to grow further and further from innocence as life goes on. I never wanted to think about getting older as a kid, I wanted to stay eight years old forever. I think there’s a part of that feeling that will always stay with me.” 

Laveda are honing their ability to write songs which grow into contemplations, and are both poignant and uniformly familiar.
