SINGLE REVIEW: We Love Us! by LARK

Australian music artist Lark has released her sophomore single, We Love Us!,a feel-good RnB dance-pop track that conjures the exotic underworld of late-night bars and summer sunrises, a shimmering beach vibe that encapsulates freedom and fun. The new track follows Lark’s debut single Dalai Lama, whose RnB and Latin inspired pop flavours are enhanced on the new track. We Love Us! was co-written and produced by LA-based producer Ollie Gabriel (John Legend, Pink, Mel B, Keke Wyatt, Jennifer Lopez, and The Backstreet Boys). Ollie’s songs have been streamed over 30 million times on Spotify and include major radio hits in the US, Australia, and Europe. Reminiscent of early Madonna and J.Lo, We Love Us! features an irresistible party groove, huge hooks and a sassy, sultry vocal performance from Lark. As Lark says about her musical inspiration, ‘I’m a big lover of pop music—its playfulness and catchiness. These are probably the two biggest elements that have influenced me.’ We Love Us! kicks off with a sure-fire beat surrounded by evocative percussive elements and funk-tinged keys. When Lark opens the song with, ‘Leave stormy weather behind / Me and my girls hittin up the coastline’, you know what you’re in for, the suggestion of summer and joyful abandon. And that’s just what We Love Us! is all about. Lark’s new single has already attracted almost 500k streaming views, its narrative of escapism and good-time charm drawing widespread appeal. But there’s more to We Love Us! than a luminescent dancefloor experience, as Lark has said about the track, ‘It’s about a road trip with the girls, but on a deeper level, it aims to inspire women to live powerfully and joyfully and abandon outdated societal narratives.’ We Love Us! is the perfect panacea for these challenging times—an alluring blend of pure pop delight and soulful summer release.
