Troy Creeps by Laveda

Darkenin Heart

Troy Creeps is the fourth single from Laveda's eagerly awaited second album A Place You Grew Up In, which is due on April 14th, 2023 via the VT/NY-based label PaperCup Music. The new song falls somewhere between nervousness and exhilaration, and contrasts some of the group's more reflective moments with a sound based on slacker rock guitars and soaring, ethereal synths.

Singer Ali Genevich claims that the song embodies "a long night spent alone with your thoughts," and bandmate Jake Brooks adds that the song's unusual title came about in this way: “When I made this demo I had just moved to a small apartment in Troy, NY. You could always hear everyone’s conversations if they were outside on that street. People were screaming at each other about something while I was recording so the name stuck.”

The new album evokes a wide range of topics, from faded innocence to the challenges of coming to terms with real life, touching on all the anguish and tension that come with coming of age.

Genevich explains: “”A Place You Grew Up In” is like a time-capsule in my memory. 2020 and 2021 felt like adulthood had crawled out from a dark cave somewhere in the woods to slowly flood my mind with 24/7 anxieties. It began with the pandemic, then Jake’s mom who had been battling stage four cancer got worse. She passed on New Year’s Day 2021. There was a lot of grief paired with drinking. Many days felt monotonous, though some were filled with writing and demoing.”

Produced by Dylan Herman (Beck, Pynkie), Laveda's upcoming album also includes their full live band, including Dan Carr (bass) and Joe Taruone (drums).
