Genre defying band, LYLVC have released “Heirloom”, the second single from their upcoming EP, Perfect Drug. The introspective track explores the walls that we build up to protect ourselves that ultimately can do more harm than good. Listen to it now below.
Co-lead singer Alyse told Hollywood Life, in part, “…The people that we love and trust the most sometimes can be the worst monsters behind closed doors, so as kids, we build up these imaginary walls to protect ourselves. But when we grow up, we find that our walls are so high that we aren’t even afraid of humans anymore. What messes us up the most now is the voices in our heads, the personal demons and insecurities we have to fight everyday. Music helped me stay alive…I hope Heirloom can help someone else with personal childhood trauma not feel so alone too.”
Co-lead singer Oscar told the outlet, “Writing the rap lyrics for ‘Heirloom’ pushed me into a vulnerable place where I was forced to face my trauma. I wanted to embody the full sensory experience in the lyrics of what it is to be afraid of someone you love. When we recorded at West Valley Studios, Mike Plotnikoff did a great job of creating a space for us to fill with the energy of this song and really bring those emotions into our recording. I confronted my demons with “Heirloom” hoping to create something others could connect to.”
“Heirloom” along with “Perfect Drug” was recorded at Multi Platinum Grammy-nominated Producer Howard Benson’s LA studio West Valley and was produced by Mike Plotnikoff and Joe Rickard.
