New Lulu: “Hot”

The latest from Lulu details a scene that sounds lovely, but delivered in a way hinting at how even the best times are bound to slip away at some point. “Hot” features lyrics about pools and warm nights, but delivered over a sparse beat marked by faint keyboard notes that mostly put the focus on Lulu’s voice. She’s not melancholy or anything, but her delivery coupled with the relatively downcast beat behind her adds a sense of temporality to “Hot” that at least lets the shadow behind the fun be a little more present. Listen above.
