SINGLE REVIEW: Lauv feat. Troye Sivan – I’m So Tired

Last year Lauv gave us a lot of singles and it doesn’t seem like 2019 will see that pattern changing. The Californian singer-songwriter has already dropped his first track of the year which hears him teaming up with Troye Sivan. ‘I’m So Tired’ is a hyper-emotional indie-pop track that hears him admitting that he’s tired of love songs, tired of love in general and tired or heartbreak. And if that’s not a mood you want for 2019 then I don’t know what is. Following the sonical structure of his previous singles he also follows a chord progression and structure that he’s very comfortable with. With dark synths that roll into a pulsating delivery he has you instantly grooving along to this catchy hook. “I’m so tired of love songs, tired of love songs, tired of love songs, tired of love. Just wanna go home, wanna go home, wanna go home”. But in comparison to his other material it’s a little lazy and repetitive. And then you have Troye Sivan’s verse which is almost forgettable as both of their vocal delivers are very similar. There needed to be a different mix that broke up their two deliveries and made them individually stand out because they sounded exactly the same. But in retrospective this is a good song, it’s just a little predictable for Lauv at the moment.
