Lauv Essentials

Lauv Essentials

Ari Leff, better known as Lauv, turns his existential crises into exceedingly hooky pop songs. Combining searingly personal lyrics with homegrown yet massive-sounding beats, Lauv is one of the late 2010s’ biggest rising singer/songwriters, with his 2017 breakout single “I Like Me Better” using a minimalist backing track and an honest recollection of a breakup to establish his aesthetic among pop fans. Lauv digs into the often-confusing reality of being a 20-something in the early 21st century with bluntness and wit, giving even songs with mopey titles like “Sad Forever” an enticing airiness.
