Lauv – Paris In The Rain

Artist: Lauv

Song: Paris In The Rain

Based: USA

Stands out: Minimal production

‘Paris In The Rain’ is a minimal R&B/Pop track by internationally acclaimed songwriter Lauv who has worked on songs with the likes of Charli XCX.

Lauv’s carefully controlled vocals are joined by single long notes played by a bass synth and some shiny short synths here and there to add a bit of colour. Later, percussion is introduced which seems to have been inspired by R&B sounds. We love this song, it’s a really great all rounder and we think you guys will really like it.

Lauv says of the song, “I’m so excited to finally share this song with the world. Ever since I visited Paris for the first time, I wanted to make a song about it. The inspiration actually came after watching the movie ‘Midnight in Paris.’ To me, the only thing more romantic than the idea of walking through Paris in the rain, (at night, in the 1920s of course), is being with someone who makes you feel like that no matter where you are.”

In addition to the releasing ‘Paris In The Rain’, Lauv recently revealed the first set of dates for his 2018 headlining world tour. The run kicks off in January and sees him extensively travelling North America and Australia before arriving in the UK for his first ever headline shows at Manchester’s Deaf Institute on 16th April and London’s O2 Islington Academy on 17th April. He then travels through Europe for the remaining dates.
