about

In ​‘Better’, we see a playful spin on the “breakup song”. This isn’t the song to listen to during a breakup, it’s a song to listen to when you’re ready to go out, dance and release all tensions as you forget about past loves. The funky synths permeating throughout maintain the high level of energy required to counteract the somber lyrics. With a rhodes piano solo featured, meeting heavy R&B flavours, the producer has created the perfect take on the modern pop sound.

Louis La Roche ​explains the process the single went through before reaching our ears, “​The demo was written in 2017. I sang the first verse, bridge and chorus (I still have it somewhere). I sent the song over to Lucy and she sent it back with all my parts re-sung as well as a second verse and middle 8, plus all the lovely stacked vocal harmonies. With a lot of the album tracks, they started out as me humming or singing ideas over my instrumentals and the collaborator really understanding where it needed to be taken, to help with my vision.”

'Better' is the first single taken from the forthcoming album 'Saturday Night Griever'.

lyrics

Verse
It doesn’t matter what you have to say
‘Cos your lies all sound the same
You’ve had your fun now watch me walk away
Only got yourself to blame

Pre-Chorus
You tell me you want me, dragging me down again
You told me you’re sorry, but that won’t stop the pain
You only get one shot, this is where it ends
So move on ‘cos I’m done being your girlfriend

Chorus
Can’t believe you played me all this time, caught you messin’ ‘round with my heart
Just admit you never could be mine, should of known you better from the start

Verse
So, tell me baby did you get a kick
Making me look like your fool
‘Cos every time I said I’m through with this
You had me coming back to you

Pre-Chorus
You tell me you want me, dragging me down again
You told me you’re sorry, but that won’t stop the pain
You only get one shot, this is where it ends
So move on ‘cos I’m done being your girlfriend

Chorus
Can’t believe you played me all this time, caught you messin’ ‘round with my heart
Just admit you never could be mine, should of known you better from the start

Bridge
I don’t think I knew you at all
Just look at all of the pain you caused
I should of known that we had to fall
‘Cos you take my love and you waste it all

Pre-Chorus
You tell me you want me, dragging me down again
You told me you’re sorry, but that won’t stop the pain
You wasted your one shot, now you wanna be friends
I don’t want nothing to do with you, that’s the end

Chorus
Can’t believe you played me all this time, caught you messin’ ‘round with my heart
Just admit you never could be mine, should of known you better from the start

Can’t believe you played me all this time, caught you messin’ ‘round with my heart
Just admit you never could be mine, should of known you better from the start
