Combined, “I Love You” are three of the most powerful words in the English language. Though very often used in popular music, newcomers Laureline still manage to capture the essence of them in their stunning debut.

With an instrumental reminiscent of CHVRCHES, the two separate vocals are introduced separately, before meeting and intertwining in the latter half of the song to create something greater than the sum of their parts. The lines of “I’ve been thinking about you” are repeated to the point that they don’t just seem like throwaway words in a pop song, but a message to emphasise the words in the track’s title, which, throughout the song, didn’t need to be said once.
