Loveday delivers the beautifully dreamy new single ‘Ugly Smile’

When the likes of Jessie Ware, Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1Xtra, Kiss FM and many more all have nothing but high praise for your work, you must be doing something right. That is exactly what West Midlands-based artist and producer Loveday has been garnering over these last few years, and now she returns with her soaring new single ‘Ugly Smile’.

Known for her beautifully rich and tender approach to the dream–pop sound, this new delight sees her continue her dynamic ascent once again. Capturing a breezy aesthetic, sweeping hooks, and sensual hooks throughout, ‘Ugly Smile’ makes for another superbly vibrant addition to her ever-growing catalogue of late.

Adding about the release, she said, “Ugly smile is about falling for somebody after leaving a toxic relationship. I wrote this track about my own experience, I was trying to convince myself that I wasn’t going to get into anything serious because I was terrified of commitment after my ex had treated me terribly. However, I couldn’t ignore how strong my feelings were for this person. I wrote this track at the peak of my confusion, hence the back and forth in the lyrics. Then finally, as the end of the song expresses, I started to open my mind to the possibility of another relationship, because this new person was different. Now that I think about it, writing this song really helped me decide what to do (I went for it, and we’re still together now a year and a half later).”

Having already featured on an episode of Channel 5’s ‘The Gadget Show’, performed at the O2 Academy Leicester, and even having a viral moment on TikTok, it feels like we are going to be hearing a lot more from Loveday in the months ahead as well.
