Lauff debuts new genre-spanning single “Let Go” where he addresses Donald Trump and learns to let things go.
“Let Go” is Lauff’s first single since his debut album Sonder. “Let Go” is an experimental trip-hop experience with electronic roots. The Boston based producer and songwriter speaks about drugs, Donald Trump, heartbreak, the Super Bowl, and the struggle of the music business, and learning to let it all go, in this genre-spanning joyride of a track. Transitioning from a hip-hop track to a dance anthem at around the halfway mark, the track’s changing soundscape will keep you listening.
With the new song came a visualizer music video as well that was posted to Lauff’s Vimeo page. The video is almost as mesmerizing as the song’s chorus, which is a combination of some poppy synths and a killer base line that you just cannot get out of your head.
“Let Go” seems to be about a personal journey as well as a comment on the world we’re in today as Lauff remarks in the song;
“F**k the Donald Trump hoes, always think you in the know. What you really know? (Nothing!)”
The song is definitely not all politics though as Lauff also comments on the rapidly changing music industry saying with a fiery passion:
“My only concentration is locking in my reputation. Making mills and smoking ’till I’m feeling, oh, so faded. Only got a year or two until my s**t is all outdated. Why this s**t gotta be so complicated?”
In the end though, the song is all about letting al of that anxiety and worry go– and dancing it all away when the beat drops.
