The story behind Iva Lamkum's debut album is far from unique - but the way the singer tells it most certainly is.
Nightline got the first peak at her new video Doo-Bop, as well as a beginner’s guide to decoding her complex lyrics.
A broken heart meant songstress Lamkum took two years longer than she intended to release her debut album Black Eagle, but like many an artist before her she found the break - in both senses - was just what she needed.
“It was kind of like, I've got this opportunity, this experience, to write something about it, and I'm glad I went through that because I made some really good songs from that,”she says.
But while taking her time worked for the album, working to a tight frame was the making of her new video.
“We were like when are we going to shoot this? Ahh this weekend! I was like, are you serious? That's like four days!” she says.
Lamkum says she sung the song Doo Bop at least 50 times within that time, which was all good practice ahead of her upcoming September tour.
