Loveher is a romantic and upbeat track that showcases Romy’s expressive vocals and Fred Again..’s dynamic production skills. The song is about the joy and intimacy of falling in love with a woman, and embracing one’s identity and sexuality. The song also contains a message of self-love and acceptance, as Romy sings: “Lover, you know, when they ask me, I’ll tell them / Won’t be ashamed, no, I can’t wait to tell them / Love her, I love her, I love her, I love her”.
The song was accompanied by a music video directed by Romy’s wife Vic Lentaigne, who is a filmmaker and photographer. The video features Romy dancing and singing in various settings, such as a bedroom, a bathroom, and a club. The video also includes clips of Romy’s friends and family, adding a personal touch to the song.
Romy’s debut solo album Mid Air is set to be released on September 8th via Young. The album will feature 12 tracks, including Loveher and two other singles that Romy has released earlier this year: Strong and Enjoy Your Life. The album was co-produced by Fred Again.., Stuart Price, and Jamie xx, Romy’s bandmate from The xx.
