Song of the Day: Used To – LOR

Newcomer, LOR fuses dark-pop production with bold yet vulnerable lyricism and smooth RnB influences to create a unique and current sound that’s both personally authentic and widely relatable. Sonically inviting and emotion-filled her debut single, ‘Used To’, narrates the all-too-familiar tale of knowing someone is bad for you but wanting them anyway. It’s about all the broken promises, all the extra chances and all the times you forgave, even though they don’t reserve it.

Written from LOR’s intimate, personal perspective, ‘Used To’ sees the young Toronto-based singer-songwriter bravely divulge her innermost thoughts and feelings over spacious pop production and airy, siren-like harmonies that perfectly demonstrate her powerful artistic range and sweet-yet-eerie vocal tone.  Coupled with an intricate, dark piano melody and backed by a melancholy beat, LOR creates a haunting sonic experience that will leave you feeling lovesick on her debut single.
