Laveda release shoegaze-flecked single ‘Clean’

New York City dream-pop duo – Laveda – have unveiled sleek new single “Clean”, taken from their awaited second album ‘A Place You Grew Up In’. 

Sulky and scintillating, “Clean” sees the two-piece traversing the darker side of dream-pop as moody melodies linger in the air like clouds blocking out the sun on a dismal day. 

Fusing gentle strumming guitars with balmy vocals and overcast stretches of instrumentals, Laveda are further perfecting their knack for shoegaze-flecked introspections that feel both achingly intimate and widely relatable.

A wistful reflection on the home truths and growing pains that come with getting older, vocalist Ali Genevich confides of the new track:

“I think for the first time I truly realised that growing up was an inevitable fate. It’s such a strange thing, knowing you’re only to grow further and further from innocence as life goes on. I never wanted to think about getting older as a kid, I wanted to stay eight years old forever. I think there’s a part of that feeling that will always stay with me.” 

Pinning together the intimate observations of Soccer Mommy, Phoebe Bridgers or Snail Mail with the grunge-laden dream-pop of beabadoobee and NewDad, “Clean” is plucked from Laveda’s much anticipated second LP ‘A Place You Grew Up In’ — due 14 April 2023 via VT/NY-based label PaperCup Music.

Featuring earlier singles including the sun-drenched “Surprise” and antsy and ethereal “F***”, the record was completed in the summer of 2021 while the band were staying on a ranch just outside of Los Angeles. 

Genevich explains:

“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.” 

Produced by Dylan Herman (Beck, Pynkie), the album also features Laveda’s full live band, including Dan Carr (bass) and Joe Taruone (drums).

Founded by duo Ali Genevich (vocals/guitar) and Jake Brooks (vocals/guitar/synths), Laveda released their polished debut album ‘What Happens After’ in 2020. As complex as it was colourful, the LP saw the band compared to the likes of The Sundays and My Bloody Valentine as they attracted glowing praise across the US and beyond.

Having embarked on two extensive headline tours across the US in 2022, as well as a prestigious slot at SXSW, Laveda will also be playing a single release show for “Clean” at The Sultan Room in New York. Tickets on sale now.
