LØLØ shares second EP ‘overkill’ via Hopeless Records—listen
Throughout the EP’s six tracks, the artist explores topics such as loneliness, isolation, depression and more.
Alongside her new EP, LØLØ also dropped a new video for "hurt less." The track is powerful, anthemic pop punk contrasting the feelings of emotional and physical pain. The playful video showcases the artist flicking through a (highly familiar) TV rotation of pharmaceutical ads, cooking shows, slasher flicks, music videos and more.
Like most musicians during 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic played a role in LØLØ’s music.
In a press release, the artist shared how music helped her cope with her anxiety and the pandemic as well as why she wrote overkill.
"Take the regular highs and lows of being young and dumb, add in a global pandemic and a heavy dose of social anxiety and you get a seriously unstable LØLØ," LØLØ says. "Armed with what seemed like an endless well of inspiration, including killing many plants and relationships, falling for people I shouldn’t, etc., I felt lost, lonely and pathetic.”
“When I feel that way, I turn to music,” she continues. “Somehow songwriting has become the only type of surgery that can fix me when I’m broken. Instead of dealing with these things like a normal person, I wrote an EP. All I can do now is cross my fingers and hope people understand the twisted pile of wreckage that is my brain."
