Today, Orange, CA artist and producer LLusion is back with a new single “STAY IN” featuring fellow California pop disruptor LoveLeo.
On the track, piano twinkles over a glitchy, lo-fi beat as LoveLeo’s harmonies flutter in and out of focus. Between sunny whistles, he urges, “So let’s stay in you and me, So let’s stay in for a week.” It’s the kind of invitation meant to make (quarantined) hearts totally swoon.
Of the song, LLusion says, “I heard the bright and sunny chords and just knew Leo would bring something really special to it. The outcome was 100x better than I imagined.”
LoveLeo chimes in saying, “I recorded ‘STAY IN’ on a rainy day while my partner and I laid in our bed reading and drinking tea. It was a beautiful moment that made me want to stay there forever.”
Last year, LLusion turned heads with a string of irresistible bops, including “walk but in a garden” feat. mxmtoon and “Sad4good” feat. Cautious Clay, which received widespread praise. The Wild Honey Pie called it “a much-needed two minutes of relief from what feels like a dark age.” Indie Shuffle described it as “some damn fine music,” and LADYGUNN gushed, “we wait in anticipation for him to rise to global success.”
