Sydney-based artist Lavrence has unveiled his second release of 2020, the catchy and wonderfully dizzying All In My Head. With the singers silky vocals showcased throughout, the track will have you grooving along, creating a dance floor in your living room.
The introspective track is a call to leave behind self doubt, focusing inward and blocking out the noise from the world around you. “I wrote this song after coming out of a long period of depression and anxiety, through a lot of self-work, and was finally feeling free enough to shape my identity without the fear of judgement holding me back.” the musician shares. “Self-doubt used to paralyze me until I stopped seeking external validation and started focusing on my own joy, opinions and guidance. Once I let go of needing to “prove” myself to others –things quickly started falling into place.This song is a call to liberate yourself from the perceptions and expectations of the outside world.”
Focusing on resistance and surrender, the track takes on a political undertone, with its underlying message ringing true in a year like 2020. “The song started taking on a more political undertone for me when I performed it at a charity event to raise money for the RFS during the devastating bushfires earlier this year. The song seemed to fit the call to action regarding climate change. The message in this song has only grown more prevalent for me throughout 2020 with important movements such as Black Lives Matter and the rise in class consciousness. More than ever, we’re being called to think for ourselves, seek truth and create change.”
The singer has been working with Sydney DJ/producer Bobby Gray to craft his signature sound. Lavrence released Nightshade earlier this year, a track which longs to be played in the clubs.
