Indie pop guitarist and singer/songwriter Liv Slingerland has long been in demand as a bassist and guitarist in the indie and pop scenes, performing with artists as diverse as Lauren Ruth Ward, Alex Lahey, Overcoats, Halsey and Olivia Rodrigo. Amidst that busy schedule, she signed to Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records and is breaking out this year with her upcoming debut solo album, Hey youreleased on August 5.

Slingerland announced the record last month with its title track and lead single, “Hey You,” and today Slingerland shared another new single, “Temporary Letdown.”

After the buzzing edges or title track of the record, ‘Temporary Letdown’ sees Slingerland pivot into a smooth, bright indie pop sound. The track is tinged with shimmering new wave synths and a dreamy mid-tempo feel, but it takes on new life when Slingerland launches into the massive chorus, delivering a performance worthy of the 80s icons it draws inspiration from. .

As Slingerland describes it, “For me, the song reminds me that you can always find a way to get back to where you want to see yourself despite whatever chaos you might find yourself in right now.”
