Lala Lala – “Dove”

In a couple weeks, Lillie West is releasing her sophomore album as Lala Lala, The Lamb. We’ve heard two songs from the Band To Watch’s upcoming LP so far, “Destroyer” and “Water Over Sex,” and today she’s sharing a third single, “Dove.”

It’s a gorgeously composed wallow, the nadir in a process of betterment where it feels like nothing will ever be OK again. “For some prettiness/ That I don’t believe/ It’s all made up/ Everyone just leaves,” West sings. The song subtly billows around her, her voice an echo amidst thick guitar lines, building in urgency before dropping away suddenly, an empty space left where something once existed.
