24 Hour Blogathon - Lia Lia - Night Call

This post is part of a 24 hour blogathon (conducted after a 10 mile run) in support of Solent Mind, a mental health support charity. I would be really grateful if you would help by sponsoring me and help raise some funds for the charity.

Lia Lia has been drip feeding singles since 2017, but Night Call is the first time I’ve featured her on Breaking More Waves.

With a video inspired by Chinese fairy tales and Japanese anime, we find Lia Lia stuck at school alone (there are shades of Britney Spears  Baby One More Time here) and conjuring forth RyĆ« — a water dragon spirit in human form from her loneliness. 

The song is full of deep synth electronic pulses - fans of the likes of Grimes and Chvrches may well find much to satisfy them here. The song was mixed and mastered by Geoff Swan (Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek, Ashnikko) and both the song and the video are undoubtedly Lia Lia’s strongest work to date.
