LØLØ has been slowly taking the pop-punk world by storm, and for good reason. Her songs are catchy and clever enough to be stuck in your head for days, and she’s managed to craft a perfect cocktail of humour and insight within her lyrics. If anyone was poised to take up the throne Avril Lavigne abdicated back in 2005, it would be LØLØ. There’s something everyone can relate to on her newest EP, debbie downer, from the simple struggle of getting out of bed in the morning, to finding yourself in a mentally draining relationship.
