Lauv is the Californian newcomer that I can’t get enough of. His new project “I Met You When I Was 18” sees him drip feeding singles in a playlist format the tell the story of falling in love, heartbreak and self discovery. His newest single “Chasing Fire” comes just weeks after his first Australian tour and it’s an absolute banger. The heartbreak anthem explores the feeling of knowing that breaking up is for the best but still being in love with them and finding it hard to give up that connection. “Im chasing fire when I’m running after you. You got that something that I never wanna lose”. It has this raw emotional storyline while managing to channel this euphoric production that will have you wanting to run around during the chorus. It’s that untapped energy ignited from the final flame that gives you the punch for the final fight to try make the relationship work. This is the boldest production we have heard since “I Like Me Better” and definitely has the potential to breakthrough to mainstream airplay. It has a different vulnerability compared to “Easy Love” and “Getting Over You” which I think just enhances the storyline and has you feeling a different kind of way.
