Lana Nauphal's upcoming album is mostly about falling out of love and a relationship ending, but her latest single is about the period of falling in love and how all encompassing that feeling is. "Oh He Oh MY" is a burst of upbeat folk that is infused with the pop music of the 1960's. The song is pure joy in musical form, and is the kind of catchy that could be a negative if the song wasn't so great. It also includes some of my favorite "Ah-ooooh" backing vocals of all time. If you've ever fallen in love, you'll know that "Oh He Oh My" captures that giddiness perfectly.
Lana Nauphal says of her upcoming album:
"Pursuing pre-law at Georgetown University, I met a truth-teller in the form of a boy. A musician himself, he picked up on what was circling, unrelenting, in my periphery, and confronted me with it: my undeniable call to music. I hadn’t realized how buried it had become— and it was his reverence of my capabilities that finally allowed me to dig it up, dust it off, and claim it as my own. I fell in with him, and his raucous band of friends, and we were ridiculously happy— sleepless, singing, painting on the walls. They brought to life a wildness in me.”
