TOTW: ‘Used To’ – LOR
LOR fuses dark-pop production with bold yet vulnerable lyricism and smooth RnB influences to create a unique and current sound that’s both personally authentic and widely relatable. Confident, resilient and versatile, LOR is here to make her mark on the industry. On July 23rd, LOR released her long-awaited debut single, ‘Used To’.
Based in Toronto, she turned to music and song writing as means of catharsis, finding that a healthy, creative outlet helped her overcome and understand difficult and emotional situations. LOR is no stranger to tough times but her music champions those who triumph over adversity and choose vulnerability over violence.
“Used to is about being in a relationship with someone who constantly lets you down but knows how to make it up to you every time, just enough that you don’t have the guts to walk away.” -LOR
Encompassed in dark, mysterious and alluring melodies, ‘Used To’ narrates the all-too-familiar tale of knowing someone is bad for you but wanting them anyway. It’s about all the broken promises, all the extra chances and all the times you forgave when you know you shouldn’t have.
