Lala Lala has shared their new single, "Armida,” available now via all DSPs. The song was co-produced by Melina Duterte of Jay Som. This ethereal track follows the stand-alone release of “HIT ME WHERE IT HURTS,” which The Fader describes as a “.. nostalgia-inducing track,…reminiscent of a song you'd hear on an '80s rom-com soundtrack, delivering the artist's smooth vocals over cinematic synths and a simple drum pattern.”
Lala Lala’s Lillie West offers this on the new single: “Armida is a true heartbreak song written after I had to get sober again last year. I asked Melina Duterte to produce. I was listening to a lot of Oneohtrix Point Never, and we used him as a sonic reference.”
