Review: "Curiosity" - Loren Heat

Loren Heat takes us through the frustrating feelings mixed signals cause with their new single, "Curiosity." This track is the artist's debut in the music industry, beginning as a university project at Teeside University. "Curiosity" was later produced and mixed by Chad Male and mastered by Pete Maher. Elaborating on the song's premise, Heat explains, “This song is about the ‘will they, won't they’ and the frustrations when the person who makes your skin feel a-light and your mind alive won't be honest with how they feel. You don't know whether they're being friendly or flirting and the feeling is tormenting, more-so when the interactions begin to border on lustful and the answers become hazier. This is that confrontation.”

Showing themselves to be a powerful force, Loren Heat's "Curiosity" is a pop anthem like no other. The track combines elements of dance pop, electro pop, and alt pop together to create an infectious debut. "Curiosity" features bold, memorable melodies and Heat's deep, sultry vocals. Intertwining captivating beats with a synth-laden soundscape, Heat constructs a dynamic, compelling single to be played on repeat. Heat pairs this intriguing soundscape with darker lyrics, producing a song that bounces between torment and flirtation, successfully conveying the mixed signals "Curiosity" is about.

Hailing from Middlesbrough, Loren Heat is a 20-year-old queer singer/songwriter. The artist enjoys creating dark pop-leaning songs, drawing inspiration from acts like Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, BEKA, Phoebe Green, and Mabel. Heat got their start by playing numerous open mic nights and recording ukele covers on TikTok. They want their music to be defiant, brave, and unashamedly pop. "Curiosity" is just the beginning of this artist's journey; with the support of Youth Music's Incubator Fund and mentoring from Tees Music Alliance, we can expect to hear great things from Loren Heat in the future.
