LAKEVIEW are Jesse Denaro and Luke Healy and through the recently released “Eyes Closed” take the listener through a recent heartbreak. The chorus kind of reminds me of “Umbrella” by Rihanna and once you hear it, you’ll understand. “Eyes Closed” is the follow up to the group’s debut “Poor Me” which arrived last month.
“‘Eyes Closed’ was such an easy song for us to write because we’ve all experienced it in some way, shape or form,” says Healy. “It’s for everyone who has had their heart broken by someone they knew, deep down, wasn’t right for them – but love has a way of making you turn a blind eye to any warning signs before it’s too late.”
“We’re so stoked for everyone to finally hear this song. The day we wrote it, we knew immediately that it had to be one of the first tracks we released,” Denaro continues. “I feel like it shows a different side of LAKEVIEW that fans haven’t seen yet.”
“It’s definitely a more dialed-back version of us, but don’t worry – there is nothing ‘lax’ about this track,” adds Healy.
“Eyes closed was written by Denaro, Healy and Kevin Bard (“How Not To,” Dan + Shay).
