Despite its seemingly somber name, S.A.D L.U.V exudes a surprisingly playful essence.
The track captivates listeners with its childlike vocals and an introduction that resonates with the nostalgic echoes of a bustling playground. For the singer, this song is meant to channel her inner child and girlhood, “I remember hitting puberty and having attention from boys and men that were way too old for me, which made me embarrassed by my body. I would cover up and awkwardly laugh.” This song embodies the rage we as females feel, yet we are still misunderstood. You can hear the mood shift after the opening when she says “Stop” which cues the indie music vibe. This element evokes a sense of growth and independence, symbolizing empowerment. S.A.D L.U.V is a strong-headed track that’s going into my playlist alongside Olivia Rodrigo.
Cosmorat is a band comprising 3 talented members, Taylor Pollock, Olly Liu, and Lorenzo Burgio. In her hometown of Pennsylvania, Taylor was gigging at bars, garages, and basements before Cosmorat. Taylor and Olly met in college eventually and started writing together while they were in and out of different bands. Together they studied recording engineering and focused on their own project. As it all came together, they moved to London where they found Lorenzo completing their lineup. And now Cosmorat has been getting positive feedback for their single Backseat Baby and will continue to impress listeners and fans.
