Lou Roy (previously known as Huxlee) is a talented singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, she released a nature-friendly lyric video for her debut single, entitled, “Bite”.
Lou Roy – “Bite” single
“Sacred sunlight kissing your head. I wake you and pretend it was an accident. ‘Cause I’m afraid, Babe, your dreams give me away. And I bite so hard sometimes, I bite so hard I cry. And if I can’t sing you back home or if i can’t give you more. Well, it’s party tricks and pretty gifts abound instead of what we couldn’t say out loud.” – lyrics
‘Bite’ tells a delicate tale of a woman who shares a challenging relationship with her significant other.
The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and well-engineered melodies. Also, the song possesses moody instrumentation flavored with contemporary folk and alternative-pop elements.
Lou Roy is a name you should remember and an exciting artist to watch. She writes sharp coming-of-age tunes that are as confessional as they are cutting.
Not too long ago, she was the recipient of BMI’s 17th Annual John Lennon Songwriting Award.
Also, she has performed background vocals for Lorde at Coachella 2017, a brief stint with Don Henly, and has had songs and performances featured on Netflix, TLC, and more.
‘Bite’ will be featured on her upcoming debut EP, entitled, “Your Friend,”, set to be released on November 15, 2019, via Sony Masterworks.
“Your Friend,” EP
“I chose to call the EP ‘Your Friend’, stylized as an email or letter sign off, as a way to state my intentions. It specifically references a line in ‘Bite’: ‘I only ever want to be your friend, but it’s not enough to say. I’ve gotta treat you that way.’ I always mean to be a good friend to the people I write songs about, but admittedly, I sometimes fall short. Each song in one way or another acknowledges how we all try to be our best selves but don’t always come through.” – Lou Roy
‘Your Friend,’ EP, co-produced by Sam Wilkes, grapples with shortcomings as a friend or lover, and revels in the beauty of good times.
The project exists in a netherworld between beauty and horror, often mistaking one for the other.
