Lava La Rue has teamed up with Deb Never for her new EP teaser, 'Angel'

Lava La Rue has teamed up with Deb Never for her new single, 'Angel'.

Released via Marathon Artists, it's a track from upcoming EP 'Butter-Fly', due in January, following on from Clairo collab 'G.O.Y.D.'.

Lava explains: "'Angel' was a product of me and my friend Isom Inis (of Foster The People) meeting each other in downtown LA and fusing some west coast acid rock with a bit of west London R&B.

"We made the whole song from scratch in a day, he’s a wizard on the synth and I was jamming on guitar. lyrically I started writing about this girl I was falling for and realised how most contemporary queer pop songs have quite a 2010s sound to it and I’d love to make a queer love song that had a 80s psychedelic pop formula to it - and bring that into the 2020s. So I started rapping on the intro all “talking heads” style. It was fun.

"Then the second time I came to LA to finish little touches on the song I got super close with Deb Never, lockdown happened and then she moved to 2 minutes from me in west London to finish her project and we started having hilarious adventures together so It all organically clicked together for her to hop on the song as a feature too."

The EP's full tracklisting reads:

1. Magpie
2. Angel feat. Deb Never
3. Goofy Hearts
4. G.O.Y.D.
5. Lift U Up feat. Karma Kid

A rare bright point in a pretty damn difficult year, BENEE's arrival has been a serotonin shot in the arm. With her debut album finally here, the future looks brighter already.
