Montreal is a place of so much culture and art, that it’s not surprising that they have so many well rounded artists. While you may not know Lauren Spear, you may know her by her stage name Le Ren. With her new debut E.P. Morning & Melancholia announced today for release in late July, her new single “If I Had Wings” and its video should make you her newest fan.
The song has all the tender and honest sounds that can pull you in. Melding a sound that intertwines folk and earnest singer songwriter tones, Le Ren delivers plenty of punch without more than just her voice. Underneath, a twang of a guitar and a simple drum deliver all of the soft swagger while the words offer plenty of balance. The video features the singer songwriter performing from an iPhone screen to a projection as her voice swoons in the background.
The video is ready to watch above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all platforms. Morning & Melancholia is available for preorder directly from Secretly Canadian/Royal Mountain ahead of its July 31 release.
