The “Bodies” single premiered yesterday on We Found New Music.“Bodies” is the second single put out by Lovaas, following up on the over a million streams success of “Lie”, released earlier this year. Since debuting, “Bodies” has landed spots on Spotify playlists such as all the major New Music Fridays (US/Canada/etc.). Watch here
The sultry video for “Bodies” was produced by Miles & A.J. and features dancer Logan Riley spending cozy, intimate time with Lovaas. Twisting and turning together in an apartment, the video matches the mesmerizing, minimalistic R&B-tinged single that is largely carried by Lovaas’s dynamic voice providing smooth, swaying drawl and euphoric falsettos. The song further amplifies the mood through Lovaas’s guitar grooving melody, accentuating the vocals and becoming more prominent as the song and video grow more intimate.
Lovaas glowed about the making of the video to Billboard, saying “The ‘Bodies’ video really did turn into art… this was such a fun video to shoot because of the environment we were in and because of all the people who were involved. It’s always incredible when the final product is as good as you thought it would be, but this video exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be more excited about it.”
“Bodies” further showcases the maturation and growth of the 18-year-old rising star, who has been making a career for himself ever since being discovered by Jason Mraz at age 14. Since then, he has elevated his craft, touring with the likes of Mraz, Ziggy Marley, Switchfoot, Donovan Frankenreiter, and winning “Best New Artist” at the 2014 San Diego Music Awards.
With the release of “Bodies” further re-affirming Lovaas’s creativity and talent with such a unique blend of pop, indie, and R&B, it is becoming apparent that he is quickly ascending the music world as a bonafide hitmaker for years to come.
