"I met you when I was 18. (the playlist)"

The Rise and Rise of the Songwriter of Melancholy Tunes, Lauv and All His Sad Love Songs

I just came from the concert of Lauv and I’m still on a natural high! I entered the concert not really a fan, just more of a curious person who heard this guy’s album I met you when I was 18 (the playlist) and decided to catch his show! It helped that I liked his earlier hits – “I Like Me Better”, “I’m So Tired” (with Troye Sivan), and “There’s No Way” (with Julia Michaels). However, almost 90% of the songs he performed tonight, before an adoring Manila audience were from this compilation album – songs which also came from his previous two EPs (Lauv and Lost in the Light). Another reason why I went to the concert was to find out, if I could, the reason for this recent phenomenon in local fandom. These past few years, I have seen the rise of singer-songwriters, mostly male, and mostly good-looking (Paul Klein of LANY, Troye Sivan, and Lauv), who have gained quite a loyal following in the country – so much so that they can sell out concerts – and cause a storm in social media – at least a local one. During Lauv’s concert last night, three of his hashtags (#LauvinManila, #LAUVMANILA2019, and #SadForever) were in the list of the top 10 hashtags of the country at that time period! The music of these guys is what we locally call hugot music – or for lack of a better translation – songs about lost love. So they are not happy love songs, but songs of breakup, songs of loss, songs of letting go and moving on – basically songs about failed relationships and what might have beens! Lauv’s show last night had its fair share of these types of songs which could be the reason it was another sold out show!
