LO NEW RELEASE LOST IN TRANSLATION
LO has done it again! She always transports us with her own lo-fi style and captivating vocals. With LO we know there is always so much thought that goes into each and every one of her songs and we couldn’t wait to hear the story on her latest release, “Lost in Translation.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS THE STORY/MESSAGE WITH YOUR SONG? WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION?
LO: “When I was younger, I had relationships that I thought were going to last forever. And in retrospect, I’m so glad they didn’t. But, after the break up there was a series of ‘what if’ moments: ‘What if we had stayed together? What if this situation was different? What if this had taken place at a different time in our lives?’ I lived in that headspace for a bit, but as time went on, I realized that those people and experiences shaped me, taught me and ultimately made me appreciate that I had experienced it in the first place.”
THE HONEY: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LYRIC OF THE SONG? BREAK IT DOWN FOR US!
LO: “’I don’t know the difference. Kinda like the pain. Love you in my misery. Love you anyway.’ I’ve been in my fair share of toxic relationships. And I thought when I was in those relationships that I could fix the person I was with. I saw who they could be and the beautiful things instead of paying attention to the red flags. For a long time that experience distorted my idea of how a relationship should be or how I should be treated. I know it’s twisted, but this is my favorite lyric because it was a nod to those relationships. They made me stronger and helped me to realize my true worth.”
THE HONEY: ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS SONG?
LO: “This is actually the single for Side A of my album ‘Holy Wars.’ I’m self-producing it or at least trying to do 90% of the production of the entire project. It was really important for me to do this because I had a lot to unpack- and by being able to put those feelings into sound myself, it made it so much easier to write and release how I’ve been feeling. It’s healing me.”
