Said to explore one person's reluctance to show feelings for another, I feel totally at home showing just how much I like this single. It pretty much ticks all my boxes. "Lorn" is a catchy, R&B-inspired, track with abstract lyricism sung through beautiful breathy vocals. Count me in!
"I'm not lovelorn, I've just let emotions grow," sings the Kenyan songwriter, singer, and producer — IkeN. Speaking to the track they say:
"The lyrics are more metaphorical in this song, and I think that allows listeners to interpret and create their own, unique stories, through the same words.”
"Lorn" comes after the release of IkeN's debut EP at second sight, and is to be followed by a series of equally unique pieces of alt-pop. If you'd like to hear more, you can find him on Spotify.
