Tropical vibes mashed to a bangin', upbeat synth soundtrack that tells a 'melancholy' story about being ghosted, Lars Night's newest single 'Ruin' is the ultimate track to dance away your relationship heartbreak.
The Brisbane-based soul-pop-electronic songstress wrote the song in her West End bedroom, experimenting with production that resulted in the raw subject matter receiving a coat of pop-tastic rhythms and pulsating synths.
"The song has a driving, pulsing energy but is melancholy in its story," Lars says. "At the time of writing it, I could feel someone I'd formed a connection with slowly start to ghost and disappear.
"It's an unnerving feeling, which makes you question your self worth and your sanity, and quite typical of modern relationships – it temporarily ruins your life."
Ahead of the song's release this Friday (15 January), scenestr is ecstatic to premiere 'Ruin' today. Enjoy.
The jazz trained Lars Night (aka Lara Wilkinson) marked 2020 with her debut EP 'About Lars Night', a release soaked in neo-soul and pop vibes. However, 'Ruin' showcases her 'dancier side'.
"I'm getting very excited to share with you a dancier side to my music; 16-year-old Lara on the school bus pumping 2007 Annual Ministry of Sound would be very stoked right now."
Lara co-produced and arranged 'Ruin' with Brandon Hughes at Scream Ahead Studios. "Working with Bran has been an absolute joy x10. We met through triple j Unearthed last year and have been writing together ever since," Lara says.
"He's kind, he's stupidly talented, he's quirky and 'Ruin' is a banger because he took it to the next level. Thanks my dude."
