Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Lav has shared two delicate cuts. One is an original called 'Sardine Song', the other a cover of Sparklehorse's 'Spirit Ditch'.
The raw and intimate 'Sardine Song' features Lav's whispery vocal and sees her taking a pause from the body of music she's still putting together.
The young singer-songwriter has always been frank and honest about her journey, and said via statement that “Sparklehorse and Mark Linkous has inspired my writing style and got me through a very dark time.
“(This may be TMI) but the last suicide attempt I made, I woke up and realized I’d left my Spotify playlist on very loud, and this song was playing," she continues. "I felt it was a sign, being that my attempt was not successful and how Linkous ended his life; a sign that my story wasn’t over. Parallels to our lives have continued to inspire me to use music and writing as a coping mechanism."
