Laces’ latest single None of You tracks a musical journey for frontwoman Jessica Vaughn that captures the aftermath of a relationship and the beginning of moving on. The song delves into this conundrum left behind where “now I’m half of me, and I got none of you,” chartering this subsequent envy, depersonalisation, and confusion throughout.
In spite of it all, the song oozes hope for the future as it builds in rhythm from the outset, drawing you in to the compelling sonic narrative. The musical arrangement alongside Laces’ vocals is layered and matches this emotional depth, coming back with power in the final chorus to sing the song out. With all these factors, Laces produces a powerful indie pop track alongside a guide for finding the light even in the darkest of times.
Laces is the latest development in a career filled with oozing potential and talent alike. Previously performing as Charlotte Sometimes, Laces retains the same compelling edge she has since day one but this time infusing her new-found warmth and self-acceptance in her music. Her sound and genius has also lent itself to work in Hasbro cartoons such as Jem & the Holograms, Littlest Pet Shop, Equestria Girls, and has secured placements on series and specials on the CW, Netflix, and ABC. With Laces, we can anticipate more brilliantly emotional indie pop songs like None of You in the future.
