LØLØ Delivers a Tender Holiday Track in “*snow in berlin*”


It’s that time of year when artists throw their hat in the ring for the holiday track of the season and LØLØ is up to bat, delivering the gorgeously intimate stripped-back “*snow in berlin*.” A departure from her punk-pop catalog, this quaint winter tune showcases a welcomed tenderness that speaks to a classic holiday feel. After sharing a collection of singles earlier this year, upbeat anthems "faceplant," "hot girls in hell," and "omg", LØLØ is ending 2023 on a tender note.

The birth of “*snow in berlin*” was a result of, you guessed it, a trip to Berlin. Being LØLØ’s first time in the city, she was enamored with its winterscape, which was a drastic change from sunny Los Angeles. She speaks on how the visit inspired this magical track saying, "I wanted to write a song to remember that moment, of feeling something so special for the first time in a while.”

What’s better than a melancholy holiday love song? “*snow in berlin*” is about more than the city’s beauty, arriving also as a reflective sentiment on how quickly the snow can melt. Its lyrics describe the twinkling ideals we manifest at the beginning of a relationship, how we picture everything panning out, and how it very rarely matches our expectations. LØLØ’s sensitive vocal delivery on the chorus makes the words all the more somber as she repeats, “I was rooting for you,” a mantra for the disappointment of a failed romance.

This season is often a bittersweet time, and LØLØ’s “*snow in berlin*” captures the beauty of these conflicting emotions. It’s an interesting lane to explore for an artist whose music leans upbeat and pop-rock, but for that reason, it successfully introduces fans to her multidimensional artistry.
