Drowning in a sea of Latino strings and ska inspired horns, Suchy’s soul-filled vocals glide across the soundscape as she sings about a friend’s toxic and mentally abusive relationship that has run its course.

A warning to the man, the track calls him out for everything that he did, telling him to lay low. But ‘Laylow’ also serves as a reminder for the girl that you should love yourself, respect yourself, and if someone is not up to par it’s time to leave, The track’s message is summarised perfectly in ‘Laylow’s most iconic lyric.

“She’s Gold Tipped
And You’re Brass Based”

Suchy is keen to use her platform & ‘LayLow’ to highlight the importance of looking for the signs of coercive control in the relationships of those around you. Not all domestic abuse is physical & ‘LayLow’ takes inspiration from a close friend of Suchy who found themselves in a mentally abusive relationship.

Signs of coercive control & behaviours include:

  • Isolating you from friends and family
  • Depriving you of basic needs, such as food
  • Monitoring your time
  • Monitoring you via online communication tools or spyware
  • Taking control over aspects of your everyday life, such as where you can go, who you can see, what you can wear and when you can sleep
  • Depriving you access to support services, such as medical services
  • Repeatedly putting you down, such as saying you’re worthless
  • Humiliating, degrading or dehumanising you
  • Controlling your finances
  • Making threats or intimidating you

Sonically inspired by ‘Bristol flair’, ‘Laylow’ comes to a head with a drum and bass breakdown that stands out from the rest of the track. Encapsulating Suchy perfectly, taking elements from all aspects of her life.
