Lauren Waller is the young pop talent based in Los Angeles. Her musical style bridges that of modern day electronic pop and 80’s dark wave synthpop while her aesthetic encompasses the confessional and poetic intimacy of the singer-songwriter idiom.
She just released her latest single “Lift You Up.” It’s an 80’s inspired synthpop song with an infectious hook and captivating melody. It’s reminiscent of Taylor Swift’s 1989 album, specifically “Welcome To New York” meets “Out of the Woods” and her voice takes on a Taylor Swift meets Ingrid Michaelson quality.
“This song is the ultimate ‘feel good pop’ song,” shares Lauren. “It’s about love that is fun, happy, and lighthearted. I hope that Lift You Up sparks a familiar feeling in listeners, whether that be nostalgia for the past or the joy of a current love.”
To date, Lauren has released two EPs and performed on RTE, Ireland’s National Television, at the International Rose of Tralee Festival, and appearances at the Viper Room and the Hotel Café. Waller has opened for many iconic bands such as Wilson Philips, Anna Nalick, A Flock of Seagulls, and most recently: Tower of Power.
On Tuesday, August 30th, Lauren sat down with BBC’s Linda McDermott on The Linda McDermott Show, and talked about Lauren’s song “Wonderful Life” and “Lift You Up” (skip ahead to 11 minutes for the interview).
