Lokoy - never missed you like i do now

Following on from recent collaborations with girl in red, Jimi Somewhere, Safario and dePresno, Lokoy returned over the weekend with the release of his new single "never missed you like i do now". In harmony with previous efforts we're treated to his huge pop energy through pulsating synths, infectious vocals and jittering electronic melodies. "I’d recently bought two new synthesisers when we arrived Berlin," Lokoy said, whilst touring with his band Sløtface in 2019. "We’d stopped to load off the van when some guys managed to mug us while we were behind the vehicle. They got away with two guitars and one of my new synths. Luckily they didn’t take my backpack where my mac was with the first draft of never missed you like i do now. My other synth also survived which I later on used for the melody for the single". Conitnuing, "I guess I’m coming to a point in my life where I’m really starting to realise that everything around me is temporary. For example, my parents are getting older. And now thoughts like "I have to spend time with them before it’s too late" are new to me. That’s what sparked the line “I never missed you like I do now”. Though Chloe, who sings on the track, interpreted the line completely different, which I love. For me that chorus means many things, because it has different intentions behind it."

Take a listen for yourselves below.
