Off the heels of an epic collaboration with Canadian singer-songwriter The Grand Mess, indie pop artist Lorelei Marcell is back with a vibrant and electrifying new sound in “Nothing Hurts Better”. After having first moved to Los Angeles, Lorelei recalls her initial moments as being difficult and anxious – everything seemed to be moving so fast but the days and weeks themselves seemed so long. It was her first time being away from her family and adjusting wasn’t as easy as she would have hoped. Big life changes are never easy, but Lorelei remembers reconnecting with an old friend of hers for a studio session and slowly, everything started to feel a bit more like home. The session was flowy and the track was something that could not be ignored. She knew at that point that she definitely needed to share this song with the City of Angels.
“Nothing feels the same way anymore, Is this it, have we learned? Never gonna stop this back and forth, Nothing hurts better – Loving you like that” ~ Nothing Hurts Better
Collaboration is at the soul of so many songs that we know and love. The beauty of her collaboration with Gavin Hudner helped take her out of one of her darkest places by turning her feelings into art. Grateful for the connection that she made, “Nothing Hurts Better” marks a notable chapter in the young musician’s life and we’re so grateful to know that it helped her start her new journey off on the right foot. Complete with electric instrumentation and soaring vocals reminiscent of a modern day Imogen Heap, Lorelei’s single stuns and hopefully, inspires other artists to persevere through even their darkest days.
Born outside of Philadelphia, Lorelei was brought up in a suburb of Boston and now resides in Los Angeles, CA. The young pop artist has not only gathered over a million cumulative streams independently but has also drawn the likes of GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter JHart [Justin Bieber, Keith Urban, Usher] to her corner. During 2019, she made her debut with “Losing Myself,” amassing 131k Spotify streams and 109K YouTube views. On its heels, the breezy “Summertime High” drew 312K YouTube views. Co-written with Valerie Broussard [Kygo, Galantis], Stefan Lit [One Direction, Andy Grammar], and Shannon McArthur [Dashboard Confessional], “Dreamin About You” maintained her momentum with nearly 300K total on-demand streams. Lorelei’s music continues to defy both era and categorization. Mixing R&B influence with a mainstream indie pop sound, her talents consistently sit front and center, and her new single “Nothing Hurts Better” certainly does not disappoint.
