“Jealous of my friends” by LOVA
Swedish indie singer/songwriter LOVA comes to us with the insightful and honest musical gem that is “Jealous of my friends”. With this refreshing blend of melodies and lyrics she speaks from the reality of life and not the fantasies that roam around our brains. She paints a picture that is very much real and palpable, when everyone is happy in a relationship and you are just not there yet but would like to be. The track understands that we all get that “jealousy” when we see others happy diving into the unknown of love while you can’t find the strength to do the same. It’s a uniquely charming and relatable soundscape that is so human and so beautiful because it does not judge, it simply gives us the chance to understand and be understood. So listen carefully and enjoy the sweet touch of this must listen musical creation!
“‘Jealous Of My Friends’ is the first song that will touch on the subject of love. For five years now, I’ve been avoiding everything that has to do with love. I’ve tricked myself into thinking that I’m better off without it—mostly because of fear. I think it’s fear of depending on someone and them depending on me, knowing that I can lose it at any second. I wrote the song at a time where pretty much all my friends were in relationships. I watched my friends be in love and be the happiest they’ve ever been. Obviously, I was super happy for them, but I also found myself being jealous. I was jealous that they dared to get out there and give love a chance, when I couldn’t. I still don’t know if I’m there yet, but writing about it is definitely a step in the right direction. I hope that this year can be the year when I give a part of me to someone else.” – LOVA
