ABOUT

Lauren Ross, AKA La Louma, is a Los Angeles-based classically trained multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer with a soulful queer-punk ethos, who “makes complex pop music sound effortless” (She Shreds). While she could be heard playing flute, clarinet, bassoon, french horn, and trumpet on St. Vincent’s debut album, Marry Me, in 2007, it wasn’t until 2017 that she released her own debut, Let The World Be Flooded Out. OUT Magazine called the album "a powerfully relatable 10-track breakout" and Billboard heralded it as “catchy and cool, but drenched with a call to action." Fresh off a tour with Mirah and an appearance at Treefort Music Fest, she performed at the most recent Bitchwave showcase in LA and headlined a special acoustic set at Junior High. More announcements coming soon!

Track 1:
"THE DECLINE OF NATIONS"

“Lauren Ross, otherwise known as La Louma, has a message for the world, and she’s not afraid to share it. That much is clear the first time you hear the opening track ‘The Decline of Nations’. It’s catchy and cool, but drenched with a call to action amidst the crunchy guitar and refrains. Something’s gotta give, and she urges the listener to ‘stay until you try to make things right.’ ”

Track 6:
"JUST WANNA LOVE YOU"

“With its core of strong hooks and a jubilant, danceable bass line, the song shows Ross’ ability to make complex pop music sound effortless, no matter how deeply she explores time signatures and rhythms throughout the track. And in the end, it all serves the overarching themes of the song, which centers around the rollercoaster of emotions that come from feeling trapped in a relationship that isn’t working anymore.”
