Layke Drops New Track!

by The Alchemist

Layke is an amazing artist that has a ton of potential in today’s world. Her newest song is called “Bad Things”


When asking her about her newest song she says, “Bad Things speaks to my bisexuality on two different points. On one hand the bisexual community is not often taken seriously by the LGBTQ+ community. Often as someone who is bi you’re constantly feeling like you have to answer to someone or prove something and that’s just not all right. Conversely the straight community never makes you feel like you really belong either. So feel like you don’t belong anywhere. And that’s what this song is addressing.


However, with everything that is going on I definitely feel like this song could be a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It has a wide umbrella that is cast with the.”


As we listened to this song, we loved the production, and the way that the song it makes you feel. It gives a feeling of happiness, and lets you forget about all the “Bad Things” going on in your life. Check out the track below.
