LØLØ’s "hot girls in hell" is a Psychotically Sentimental Alt-Pop Anthem
LØLØ’s "hot girls in hell" is psychotic in the most sentimental of alt-pop ways.
LØLØ bares a bit of vulnerability as the song starts, letting haunting vocals fill a delicate soundscape. The anticipation hangs heavy in the quiet of the arrangement, though, and by the end of the first verse, LØLØ launches us into a pop-punk, slightly steamy breakup revolt. With an accompanying music video, listeners get to witness the artist set her former love on fire, basking in the heat of the flames.
We had previously gotten to experience the alternative prowess of LØLØ when she teamed up with girlfriends’ Travis Mills for the cathartically scream-able confession, “5,6,7,8.” The powerhouse duo complements each other in the best pop-punk-Romeo-and-Juliet, grunge-princess-meets-skater-boy way on this track. LØLØ has mastered the art of a melody that cuts like the sweetest knife, pure pop in its hooky-ness, but raging in its delivery. girlfriends' Travis Mills hops on the second verse, responding to LØLØ with his signature tone, biting and emotional in its early 2000s emo-alternative style. They marry their impassioned vocals with distorted guitars and driving drums, creating a fiery cocktail of angst as their harmonies fall into place. Through "hot girls in hell" and “5,6,7,8,” LØLØ flaunts her ability to romanticize toxicity in an achingly relatable way.
LØLØ will be embarking on a tour supporting Boys Like Girls and State Champs this fall, getting to rage all across the US. Check out the music video for "hot girls in hell" for a glimpse of the pop-punk party that her live shows are sure to be:
