"It's a perfect world until it's not", with intoxicating vocals and a big chorus, atmospheric opener "26" effortlessly sets the tone for the rest of the album: brutally honest and beautifully cathartic. Soaring euphoria meets an addictive kind of heartache where Lauv - aka Ari Leff - allows smooth basslines to wrap around notoriously slick beats. In short - it's Lauv as we know and love him.
How does one measure talent? Creating original, inspired music? Selling out headline tours? Amassing billions of streams? The answer doesn't matter, because Lauv is ticking all the boxes. Also known as Ari Staprans Leff, Lauv has amassed 11 billion streams in between selling out headline tours, supporting Ed Sheeran's stadium shows , and doing the rounds of all the major American talk shows . Now, the California musician is giving fans some new, yet familiar material with his sophomore album, 'All 4 Nothing'.
