Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Lexi and I am the mind behind the LA-based indie dream pop solo project, Love You Later. This is a fairly new project but I’m excited about it because I don’t think a lot of people are familiar with my kind of music. Hopefully I can lend some freshness to a lot of ears because I like to be different. I can’t think of a day where I wasn’t singing in the shower of drumming on my lap in the car. I have always been intrigued by the power of music and how it can make you feel any type of way. That’s why I decided to write my own music; because I genuinely just want to make people feel. I want people to connect to something in my music even if it’s just one simple word or lyric or beat. I want them to feel something so prominent that they remember that exact moment; where they were, what they were doing, who they were with, and of course, what they were listening to. I want to create moments. That is what Love You Later is all about.
Where did the new single come from?
Well, I thought ‘Lost In Los Angeles’ sounded like an intriguing title because I’m all about alliterations (hence ‘Love You Later’) so I started there. I mean, I think anyone that lives in the LA area could tell you about the overwhelming traffic situation. It truly is hard to get lost in Los Angeles even if you’re a local…No but really, I think we’ve all had someone we can’t stop thinking about. They are a distraction. Whether they’re a good or bad distraction, well, I left that up for interpretation. You can’t take your mind off this person or think about anything else, even if it’s as simple as driving in your own town.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
You know it. I can’t give an exact date, but I definitely have a few finished songs that I can’t wait for people to hear. But of course, I want to make them the best they can be before releasing them. I will most likely be releasing 2-3 more singles within the next few months before releasing an EP sometime this summer (fingers crossed).
What’s on the horizon for you?
I definitely want to have an EP (or two) out by the end of this year. Then, after a few more songs get released, I’d love to play some live shows for sure. Playing live is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. I honestly wouldn’t mind if it was a room of 5 people; just knowing that I made one person feel something with a song I wrote is everything to me. But don’t get me wrong…a sold out show would definitely be the coolest thing EVER, no doubt about it. I know this year’s going to be a rad one and man, I can’t wait for people to have more moments to my music.
