F*** by Laveda

Darkenin Heart

A Place We Grew Up In, the second album by New York band Laveda, was produced by Dylan Herman (Beck, Pynkie), and is expected to be out on PaperCup Music in Spring 2023. F*** is the second single from the full length, an expressive and emotional dreampop track with a college coming-of-age concept.

Laveda's Ali Genevich describes: "By my second year of college, I knew I wanted to write, record, and perform music all the time. I had a heavy load of requirements for my music degree so it felt like school was just this big delay to actually starting the career I envisioned. I used to hold a lot of negative energy in my head whenever I was in class. By my fourth year I was completely checked out.

"College felt like high school part 2 to me. I thought most people would have grown out of the desire to be in clicks and look up to whoever was popular by age 19, but I realized that some people never do. I watched a few friends go through some toxic relationships. It was a perfect breeding ground for shitty dudes to prey on naive girls. I wished I could make all the bad people disappear so they couldn’t drag down the ones I cared about with them."

Laveda were founded by duo Ali Genevich (Vocals/Guitar) and Jake Brooks (Vocals/Guitar/Synths), and the new album features their live lineup including Dan Carr (bass) and Joe Taruone (drums).

“We were able to find new meaning in a lot of the songs while out in California. It ended up being this very therapeutic process and I’m extremely grateful for it,” Genevich says, after much of the record tracking was completed in the summer of 2021 while staying on a ranch just outside of Los Angeles.
