Bedroom indie pop and LGBTQ artist Awfultune (who is Layla Eden) builds on her effervescent musical repertoire with her latest single “sad love song.” Available today (January 21) via AWAL, Eden’s “sad love song” features her infectious lyrics and unique production.

“This song is about something most girls know all too well – a gambling boyfriend – so she’s obsessed with writing a ‘sad love song’ to ruin her reputation for revenge. for breaking her heart,” Eden explains. “The pop tone and upbeat vibe masks the true sadness of the story, much like a girl would mask her true feelings and pain. I’m widely known for my sad love songs, but the sound and true meaning are rubbish. but this. I could write a ‘sad love song’, or I can just give a fuck about you.”

Over the past few months, Eden, who is openly in transformation, has chronicled her rainbow-fueled journey through her art and content. His current opus is blue, as evidenced by the cover and publicity photo of Joshua Shultz’s “sad love song”. Look for the corresponding video for the song – also directed by Shultz – which will be released soon.

“sad love song” follows awfultune’s previous releases including “soda,” “redesign,” “MINE,” and her 2019 single “I Met Sarah in the Bathroom” which collectively earned her over $300 million. of global flows. Along with “soda,” these are two of many new songs to be released over the next few months leading up to awfultune’s debut album slated for release via AWAL this spring.

Layla Eden (known musically as awfultune) is nothing less than a resplendent musical mirror of her own human experience. Floating a few covers through the SoundCloud stratosphere around 2017, Eden quickly adorned themselves with the moniker awfultune due to their belief that their efforts would fall on deaf ears. She was wrong. As of 2021, she now boasts over four and a half million monthly steps on Spotify, officially evolving out of indie pop obscurity.

Born and raised in upstate New York, Eden’s musical evolution is intrinsically tied to his own adaptive identity. From plaintive to gently serene, their chromatic catalog of dreamlike compositions succinctly echoed their shift from masculine to feminine-becoming that she always was. She is both a stern champion of the LGBTQ+ community and a strong advocate for anyone who has simply felt alone or alienated from themselves.

Though filled with reverie and emotional complexity, A Horrible Original prides itself on its minimalism. For Eden, the narrative is usually candid and central. A dazzling emblem of this story-centric ideal is their passionate and quintessential 2019 offering, “I Met Sarah In The Bathroom.” More rooted in emotional truth than reality, Sarah represents Layla’s more daring and uninhibited alter ego. More than anything, it’s a love letter to themselves. Having now amassed over 150 million streams on YouTube and Spotify, the track is an exciting highlight in their history so far. Responding to an outpouring of audible desires for more of Layla and Sarah’s love story, Eden is ready to share the rest of their rainbow-fueled journey with fans, and what each of these colors has represented for them in life and through their own transition.
