K-indie Band Lacuna Reinterprets Love in New Single 'I Love You'


K-indie band Lacuna, recently having garnered attention for their dreamy, fairytale-like music shown through Mnet’s band survival show ‘Great Seoul Invasion,’ released a new single album titled [I Love You] on September 14.

Their first-ever release since appearing in ‘Great Seoul Invasion,’ [I Love You] centers around a more sophisticated interpretation of love as a universal theme, compared to their previous release [Summer Tales], a collection of awkward but genuine love stories told from a boy’s point of view. Listeners will feel a connection to a newly found, mature side of Lacuna. 

The title track was inspired by the film ‘Lovers on the Bridge’ directed by Leos Carax. Akin to the film’s intense visuals and storyline, ‘I Love You’ is a dreamy yet explosive track which sings of love felt from the most abstract moments in life. In addition, B-side ‘Far Away’ is Lacuna’s first-ever song written together as a team, a sonic representation of the members’ hopes and dreams. The music video for ‘I Love You’ focuses on the members at a beach dimly lit by the setting sun, running until they’re out of breath and later putting on a dramatic performance of the song in front of bursting fireworks.

Lacuna has also announced plans for a concert at KT&G Live Hall Hongdae on September 16th, titled ‘Lovers.’ The show sold out in seconds, breaking the band’s record for fastest-selling gig, and solidified Lacuna’s way to a brighter future. At ‘Lovers,’ fans can expect to hear the new single live for the first time and witness each member’s individual charm, no doubt showcased to their fullest extent onstage.

Lacuna’s single album [I Love You] is now available on all streaming platforms.
