Singled Out: LOVEYOU's I Want To (Make You Feel Happiness)"


L.A. indie-pop band LOVEYOU are gearing up to release their debut album "Sparkle & Crush" next week and to celebrate we asked frontman Andrew to tell us about the song "I Want To (Make You Feel Happiness)". Here is the story:

Sometimes I'll write a song that's very different from the kinds of songs I'm writing at the time and it sends me off into something new. "I Want To (Make You Feel Happiness)" was that kind of lyric for me. The song is about the sentimentality I experienced after losing things I identified with, the static of days and the feeling of losing yourself in all that and being okay with it. So it's kind of about everything for me.

Before I recorded the song, I had the music laid out and when the chorus came, I'd just sing the only line I had; "I want to make you feel happiness." On its own as a lyric, it was sort of funny to me. I spent probably two months working out the rest of the lyrics and it shaped up to frame that line in a different light I think.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album and their special release show right here!
