Able Joseph - Five Influences Behind 'Lonely LA'

  • 1 min read

Telling an intimate story about changing lives and circumstances 'Lonely LA’ proves Able Joseph’s talent for writing heartfelt mid-tempo classics. The song surrounds the listener with sentimental melodies, captivating production and an outro that begs to be sung by a crowd, acapella into the night sky.

Already racking up a legion of followers (over 80,000 on Spotify alone), Able is a stellar talent, signed to Sydney indie label Double Drummer, home to Greta Stanley, Dominic Breen and Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird.

A tender single about two people having to adjust to life’s curveballs and facing change as a team, 'Lonely LA' echoes with a charming, sentimental side that has made it instantly enjoyable nationwide. Earlier this week, we featured the single alongside the track's touching new visualiser, and now, we're proud to present an exclusive new feature from Able, as he recalls five influences behind the breakthrough single.

Featuring films and songs that helped shape the style and sentiment behind the song, Able recorded his own video outlining his inspirations. Check it out below.

Able explained upon the single's release, "This song is a homage to songwriting. We wanted to keep the structure as simple as possible but still weave in different moments and transitions that take you somewhere unexpected. The outro is a deeply honest conversation between two people and the production reflects that; it’s closer to the mic, more intimate and raw. I’m really proud of the story we tell."
