Lala Lala burst onto the Chicago music scene in 2016 with their debut record Sleepyhead. The project of musician Lillie West, Lala Lala are releasing their sophomore album The Lamb on September 28th through Hardly Art. West explains that the album was written “during a time of intense paranoia after a home invasion, deaths of loved ones and general violence around me and my friends... I began to frequently and vividly imagine the end of the world, eventually becoming too frightened to leave my house. This led me to spend a lot of time examining my relationships and the choices I’d made, often wondering if they were correct and/or kind.” The album’s lead single and Song of the Day is “Destroyer” and came from the anxieties surrounding the events just described. "['Destroyer'] is about retroactively realizing your fe,elings and trying to figure out what happened to get you where you are. Feeling out of control and like you’re stuck in a feedback loop.” Lala Lala will play Neumos on Monday, November 12, opening for WHY?.
