Filter Alternative: Following numerous single releases since 2019, we’re excited to finally present LORENS EP ‘I Guess It’s About You‘! The EP follows themes of jealousy, disharmony and melancholy, encrypted with lyrical metaphors and secret messages. At times longing for love and at others fighting to get away, a complex emotional pattern is laid out in a journey of production from highs to lows, understated melodies. If you’re into Kelela, FKA Twigs, or Kelsey Lu, this one is for you!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The songs all reflect personal experiences and the thoughts that arise when you take a step away from the situation and observe how you have experienced it. LORENS is not afraid to honestly process even difficult, painful incidents and to present their point of view in a lyrical way. This honesty creates a closeness to the text, but also to the artist herself, which only few succeed in doing. And yet there is enough room for everyone to find themselves in the songs.
Born during the ‘90s in the Balkans, LORENS began writing songs when she was just 9, later exploring her lyricism throughout high school by recording demos and eventually creating her sound in her bedroom after moving to Berlin for college. LORENS, also a former MTV Adria VJ, is influenced by artists such as Depeche Mode, Kate Bush and Goldfrapp.
The lo-fi pop newcomer is a true woman of action: writing, producing, artwork, videos – she doesn’t shy away from any challenge. This is what makes her work so authentic: she manages to be cool and at the same time naturally feminine, fashionable and approachable, spirited and soft.
During her past releases, LORENS has had highlights like placement in Spotify’s Off-Pop, Alt-Pop, or Fresh Finds playlists, as well as Deezer’s Chillout Musik playlist. Singles of the EP have received coverage in media such as German Bedroom Disco and The Postie, a rotation in DasDing radio, and a steady increase in Instagram and Spotify followers. She awed viewers with her beautiful video for single, “Just Because,” leaving a strong impression that aesthetics would be strongly tied to future music from LORENS.
