Sounds: Laveda // If Only (You Said No)

I hear you come around standing at the door
I know it’s you think I’ll ignore
While the rest of them are falling
Love isn’t something that I need anymore

I hope you’re in the crying mood, because Albany-based dreampop band Laveda is over here pulling at my heartstrings. Mercury Retrograde is notorious for breakups, and nothing is a better breakup (or makeup?) track than their recently-released tune “If Only (You Said No).”

If only you would go but I won’t stop calling
if only you could know this door won’t open
if only you stayed home I’ll be waiting for it
if only you said no

Made up of Jake Brooks and Ali Genevich, the duo is 100% singer-songwriter vibes met with gorgeous vocal layers, and rugged guitar energies. Listen to their new track below.

Ali and Jake have been touring across the East Coast U.S. while wrapping up the recording of a 10-song LP in Albany / Brooklyn, NY. They will be performing a single release party Friday Nov 15th at LOLA (fmr. Coney Island Baby) in New York City.
