Lila Gold‚Äôs sound echoes the past while having one foot planted 5 minutes into the future. There‚Äôs an air of edge that clings to her, shining through in her new single ‚ÄòHappy Idiot‚Äô, a song she wrote with a shadow over her back, a flighty and restless weight.
With previous single ‚ÄúLoveless‚Äù a resonating force of dystopia and bittersweet hooks, gaining both Triple J Unearthed and online critical acclaim she now unleashes her next track ‚ÄúHappy Idiot‚Äù, co-written with L.K. McKay, produced by Tremelokid and L.K. McKay (Tkay Maidza) with mixing by Geoff Swan (Charlie XCX, Grimes, Chvrches). One listen to ‚ÄúHappy Idiot‚Äù reveals a private universe of a surreal and whimsical world mirroring moody and insecure mixed emotions, resonating the nature of Gen Y. Fuelled with cold digital circuits which all might come ‚Äúunhinged‚Äô if not for the insidious melodic candy the song has in spades.
‚ÄúI think I sound a bit kooky and crazy in the recording, I love that the most. It‚Äôs unsettling as much as it is hypnotic and melodic. it‚Äôs about the perpetual pursuit and navigation of seeking intimacy, validation and amusement as millennials and the disillusion that warps and wraps around us sometimes.‚Äù ‚Äì Lila Gold
