Singer-songwriter laye has released the song and visualizer for “you’re my achilles heel” which previews her forthcoming sophomore EP losers set for release on September 22, 2023 via Sony Music Canada.
Co-written with Gray Hawken (Jack Harlow, Alessia Cara) and Rachel West (Young Thug, Machine Gun Kelly, WILLOW), the song explores “the tension that exists when you love someone who’s toxic.” The single continues laye’s exploration of the darker aspects of Indie Pop.
This song is a special one to me. It’s a lullaby but it’s also another soft little rager that fits with the rest of the music on my EP. I think it kind of touches on the extremities of an all-consuming love. ‘you’re my achilles heel’ is a love song but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a healthy one. In a way, I think it’s a good prelude to all the heartbreak songs on this project.
