Louise Lemón is the kind of artist that can capture both the softness and the emptiness of loneliness and turn it into pure gold. She has a knack for conjuring beauty from disparity with her enchanting sound -bringing pain, desire and desperation together. With vocals reminiscent of Cat Power, Lana Del Rey and PJ Harvey’s open and airy noir-sound over a dark and rich piano instrumentation, ‘Tears as Fuel’ is a beautifully honest tale of the overwhelming power of heartbreak.
Commenting on the new single Louise Lemón said; " When all you have with someone is tears, you will drink those up like they are wine. I started telling myself, If love is true, he’ll truly hurt you, cause why else would there only be these tears. When you have nothing, pain is something, so sometimes you’d rather hold on to that than be left with nothing. The musicians I play with went above and beyond incorporating their passion and making this pain come to life and become something that is love. "
