Lava La Rue – Lovebites

Lava Larue by Claryn Chong

Landing in the wake of the announcement of Lava La Rue’s eagerly awaited debut album, STARFACE due July 19th via Dirty Hit, and previous vulnerable offering “Humanity”,


Lava’s new single “LOVEBITES” is a self-confessed “insufferable gay anthem”.

A truly addictive track “LOVEBITES” sees Lava musing over the fact that her “girlfriend has a boyfriend” – it’s a queer love song that the young artist craved growing up, especially in an alt music space.

Speaking on “LOVEBITES”, Lava shares: “Lovebites is about being a lover’s lover. In the context of the album it’s about a gender fluid alien falling in love with a human girl who has a boyfriend. I amalgamated my own experiences with the love triangle you see in Doctor Who between the Doctor, Rose (Billie Piper), and Mickey (Noel Clarke).”

“The whole song with all the lyrics/storyline/epic melodies was pretty much completed within an hour of its conception in West Hollywood at Aaron’s (Apob) house. I was in a really prince-y mood and once Aaron laid down that bassline & drums then put a microphone in my hand whole song just started pouring out of me like a confession.”

The new single also accompanies the exciting news of Lava supporting Remi Wolf on select dates for the Big Ideas North American tour this September, kicking off on September 10th in Santa Barbara and wrapping in Philadelphia on September 27th – full list of dates below.
