An explorative and dedicated artist, producer, and songwriter Robbie Vonn portrays the meaning of forgiveness from different perspectives in his emotional yet upbeat new single, "La La Life."
Robbie Vonn is best known for bending and blending genres from progressive rock to electro-pop with bossa nova and flamenco hints. His artful approach, dynamic sound, and evocative lyricism have been well received by the media and fans who continuously return to experience Vonn's relatable themes.
Recently releasing his harmonious and thought-provoking new single, "La La Life," Robbie Vonn teams up with an unnamed artist, most likely Juliet Lyons, who collaborated with the producer on his 2021 EP, 'Hopeless Memories.' The new release is a sonic and lyrical treat for the mind, body, and soul, traversing the challenges of forgiveness and setting someone, or yourself, free.
Expanding on the new single, "La La Life," the experience begins with this deeply immersive and melodic sonic arrangement through upbeat drums, haunting background strings, the brightest acoustic guitars, and this overall radiant yet somewhat melancholy electronic feel.
As the soothing vocalist begins sharing her woes with battling forgiveness and wanting to leave things behind, she carries us to the hook where Robbie Vonn drenches our speakers in minor keys and an intoxicating flamenco/electronica approach.
This song is wildly engaging, from the relatable lyrics of setting someone free to Vonn's celestial and organic instrumentals/production that perfectly showcases his explorative artistic abilities. The song's hook is an ear-worm, and we're sure you'll be left chanting alongside the lead vocalist when taking this sweet single for a spin.
Wipe away your woes with help from Robbie Vonn's newest single, "La La Life," now available on all digital streaming platforms.
Welcome to BuzzMusic, Robbie Vonn. We adore the meaningful and melodic experience you've provided on your new single, "La La Life." What inspired the song's concept about the challenges of forgiveness?
First, thank you for having me on your blog and for your kind words. I deeply appreciate it. About the inspiration, well, life gives you the opportunity to go through a variety of experiences. Often you do or say things that you regret a while or vice versa. You may be the recipient of those actions or words that may stay with you for some time. In the end, whatever the case is, my experience tells me that the optimal (and sometimes imperfect) solution is to learn, forgive, and move on. That's all that this song is about.
Who was the featured vocalist on "La La Life?" Have you worked together before?
This song was our first collaboration, and we agreed to keep it under Robbie Vonn's name. One interesting fact about "La La Life" is that some vocals were made with a virtual singer. Technology's amazing and scary at times.
How would you describe the overall sound in terms of genres within "La La Life?" What sound did you want to achieve?
"La La Life" started as a bossa nova composition, to which I added some elements of pop, rock, classical, and electronica to make it a bit more contemporary—or confusing, depending on who you ask. I recorded multiple versions, but in the end, I ended up with what you hear today. I made some of these versions available on Instagram and YouTube. Maybe one day I'll remix it into something else. Who knows. I just love music in most of its flavors. I am not sure I can classify it from a genre perspective, but I did not intend to put it into a specific one.
How does "La La Life" contrast the theme and sound of your recent EP, 'Hopeless Memories'? What are the core differences between these two projects?
The central theme of this project is life experiences. With "Hopeless Memories" and "La La Life," I have only covered unfairness, loss, fading love, and forgiveness. There is so much more to explore. The contrast is mostly on the execution in terms of music or sound and art. I have been blessed with the people I have worked with within these projects, and I'll be eternally grateful to them for turning a simple composition into a unique and extraordinary piece of art.
What's next for you?
I have more singles coming up this year. The songs are already written, and I'll keep experimenting with the idea of life experiences. Hopefully, more talented artists will join me in this endless exploration of lyrics, music, and art.
