Premiere: LOVER's new single 'Spiders'.

Rising Australian artist LOVER is gearing up to release his debut EP, 'It's A Wild World', and today we are premiering the latest offering, 'Spiders'.

With musical similarities to Dominic Fike and Brockhampton, this new song 'Spiders' is a slow R&B jam which sees him reflect on finding someone you've been searching for.

About the song, LOVER shares: "The night before this session I had stumbled across this story from Greek Mythology; “humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.” The story must have resonated with me and stuck in my subconscious as the next day I pretty much sung all the lyrics and melody in one go. The song covers the same story but from the perspective of when you find the person you’ve been searching for. All your past relationships and experiences feel like the pathway to this person and can feel like you are free falling."
