Amoeba Review

Lauv is Latvian for “Lion” so, fittingly, the 25-year old singer-songwriter lacks not for boldness. It takes some true chutzpah to create a debut studio album (though that particular designation may depend on how much you view 2018’s “playlist” I Met You When I Was 18 a proper LP) as thoroughly stuffed and ambitious as this. Featuring 21 songs and clocking in at over an hour long, How I'm Feeling is an artistic introduction whose ostentatiousness is graciously matched by the quality of its work. Employing an album concept that personifies different shades of the singer’s identity, Lauv uses his debut to showcase his songwriting prowess. You can be sure there are earworms aplenty, such as the bouncy and bubblegum “Tattoos Together,” which complement the forlorn ballads that dot the record, all featuring dead giveaway titles such as “Sad Forever” and “Modern Loneliness.” Yet rather than dwell in one extreme or another, much of the album strikes a precarious pop balancing act, whether its melding melancholic lyricism with an R&B groove on “Changes,” or the almost ‘90s boy band throwback “Feelings.” The album’s greatest achievement, however, might just be “Fuck, I’m Lonely,” a song that embraces its self-aware, sad boi title with a jaunty, soulful pop hook buoyed by synthesized bells and boom-bap drums. In perhaps a laudable attempt to evade the FCC’s talons as much as possible, Lauv’s vocals stretch the titular profanity into a high falsetto, twisting the consonants ‘til they’re nearly unrecognizable; a blink-and-you-miss-it exultation. How I'm Feeling might be one of the more long-winded pop albums of recent memory, but Lauv never runs out of things to say.
