Joshua Golden aka pop artist LovexLies is back and perhaps more dynamic than ever with an all too relatable new track “Venom”. The buzzing young artist brilliantly captures a lyrical brutality through open-hearted storytelling as he continues his struggle with a cycle of toxic relationships. Complete with hard-hitting vocals suitable for mainstream audiences, LovexLies features infectious synths and booming electric guitar, creating a soundtrack for a storyline that doesn’t seem to end. Produced by notable IAmCharlieAnderson, “Venom” expresses Golden’s frustrations with love and how he can’t seem to walk away from endless clashes with toxicity, even when things seem to be going in the right direction. He describes his experience as if it were a “venom” that took hold of him every time he tried to make love work. And he may think it’s the girls he should be wary of, but at the end of the day, his biggest battle is with himself.
“It’s something about the way you bite me ’til I feel numb / I can feel your venom running through my veins” ~ Venom

About LovexLies: LovexLies (pronounced Love & Lies) is a New York native, currently based in Virginia Beach. Influenced by a combination of alternative rock, rap and 2000s pop, LovexLies intentionally channels a variety of genres to tell their stories. Coming from a background in artist management, Golden brings a comprehensive industry perspective to the table. After almost a decade of management, he realized that the business side of music was not for him and that his passion was better suited to creating and performing. Not just creating to create, but delivering authentic content that is true to its mission – to transcend the role of broadcast music as another source of entertainment. Having repeatedly faced love, loss and lies, Golden wants people to know that they are not alone and that by listening to his music they discover the spirit of someone who has been through many relatable struggles. Above all, he hopes that by showing his true self, he could help people see that while we have our own struggles, we’re not that different.
