LAWRN release “The Westside”
“The Westside” is the second single from London band LAWRN’s (pronounced Lauren) upcoming EP. This summer pop song is full of West Coast vibes. The washy synths and shiny guitar chords give this song a real day-dreamy summer feel. The song was written about a trip lead singer Andy took to see his girlfriend in LA while she was on tour. The band wanted to capture that perfect California summer in this song – Venice Beach, sun and love.
“The Westside” was produced by Superheart, an artist that the band really liked. They reached out and began working on the production of this EP earlier in the year. LAWRN are a London-based alt-pop band formed in 2018 with singer Andrew, drummer Harm and guitarist Ollie. They released their debut EP, “Pretty Things”, last summer. The music is predominantly keyboard based as the project started with Andrew writing songs on a piano and a love of 80s pop quickly led to the sound they have now.
Andrew and Harm went to school together and started making music again when they moved to London. Their influences range from the huge pop bands like the 1975 to bluegrass piano tracks of Bruce Hornsby and the pop bands of the 80s. LAWRN have been lucky enough to play some high profile shows in their short time as a band. Their first ever show saw them support Belle Mt at St Pancras Old Church. They have since played at the O2 Academy Islington, Notting Hill Arts Club and St Pancras Old Church again supporting Superheart.
