Lou Roy has shared a new single called ‘Valkyrie’. The track marks the singer-songwriter’s first release for new label Balloon Machine and was co-produced by Sarah Tudzin of illuminati hotties. Give it a listen below.
“The song began with me tapping my water bottle while listening to my buddies have a conversation around me,” Roy explained in a statement. “It was called ‘water bottle birthday beat’ for months, until one night in July I got high and decided to just put the beat on loop and improvise lyrics. I had a panic attack a few days before, and had recounted that in the opening line, and from there I just decided to go stream of consciousness based on that. Apparently, I was feeling angry and vengeful – the rest of what came out was all about embracing rage.”
She continued: “Then in a sudden shift of perspective, I noticed I wanted peace and quiet and asked myself, ‘hey man, whatcha doin? Come on back, I need you movin!’. It was a gentle request to please not be so upset, I’m scaring me!”
Lou Roy’s debut album, which will follow her 2019 EP Your Friend,, is set to arrive early next year.
