Layover Return With “Your Laughter Never Leaves”

Despite only having 5 tracks, Layover returns after a 2 year hiatus with a brand new EP beckoning back to the golden era of emo pop punk. The bands’ first EP since they announced an extended break in 2016, “Your Laughter Never Leaves” has Layover playing with a renewed energy and a band that’s matured both sonically and personally.

“YLNL” is filled with equal parts of wit and grit addressing a wide range of topics such as mental health and loss, sensitively and sincerely.  When asked about the new tracks, vocalist Luke Rainsford said, “We are bringing a sound that is predominantly based within the American market. Our honesty and intense live shows bring a refreshing atmosphere that we feel sets us apart, but ultimately we are just 4 close friends trying to share our music.”  

Watch the official video for “Slumber” below.

Listen to the EP on Spotify and grab a copy on iTunes and Amazon now!
