REVIEW: Lauv | New York City


Lauv performed a sold out show at New York City’s Webster Hall as part of his US tour, and blew everyone away, fans old and new! Stumbling across him by accident, the rest of the audience in this 400 capacity venue were dedicated long-term fans, singing along, and it felt really cool to be part of such a scene whilst listening to such fresh music.


Lauv’s music is commercial pop/R&B, using a live band but with a slight electronic edge to it. His debut EP ‘Lost In The Light’ was just released last year. From this, his song ‘The Other’ was by far my favourite, and of course this is the song that is his latest single. It’s got a taste of really old-school pop but at the same time very contemporary because of its use of production, which is a prominent part of his music too, even when performing live.


Not to mention, Lauv also showed off his multi-instrumentalist skills on stage, proving even further what a genuine musician he is, playing on the guitar, keys, and of course, singing so brilliantly.


Lauv is currently touring the US so definitely go check him out, each show rapidly selling out one after the other. UK followers, let’s hope he’s over there soon!
