Los Angeles based Singer/Songwriter Lauren Nikohl, a Minnesota native, released her first EDM single on Friday, July 20th, 2018. The producer on the track is Grammy-winning and Billboard-charting artist, Robert Eibach. The two have worked together a few times before, once on a remix for her debut EP “The Night,” and once more for a charity song recording of “We Are One” by David Longoria and friends. The music video for Against the Wind was directed by award-winning filmmaker Neil Watson.

The young songwriter began writing Against the Wind in frustration with how her music dreams were viewed, always hearing things like “Isn’t LA a dangerous place?” or “You want to be a starving artist?”. She had just moved to Los Angeles to pursue these dreams and had to fight a lot of criticism and self-doubt to get there. As the song progressed, Lauren felt that its message related largely to the political environment of the time. She hopes that the lyrics will motivate listeners to fight for their dreams even in the face of fear, to stand up for what’s right, and to not be silenced by hegemonic restrictions. The music video features a few stock video scenes of historical protests, amplifying this underlying message of freedom. A portion of the sales from this single will be donated to Represent.Us, a non-profit company working to end corruption in our government by getting big money out of elections.
They will try to bring you down
Because they never tried
To do what you are doin, what you are doin
That don’t make ‘em right

It took me a while to see
That no choice could be wrong
Just do what makes me happy
What makes me happy

Even when the sky comes falling, sky comes falling
I’ll fight, I’ll fight
I’ll fight against the wind
Even when the thunder’s frightening
I’m still smiling
I’ll fight against the wind

I’ll fight against the wind
I’ll fight against the wind
I’ll fight against the wind

Rules were built by other hands
They can be broken down
I know I can rebuild them, I can rebuild them
I’m the creator now

It took me a while to see
That my voice really counts
And I know I should use it
Know I should use it

Even when the sky comes falling, sky comes falling
I’ll fight, I’ll fight
I’ll fight against the wind
Even when the thunder’s frightening
I’m still smiling
I’ll fight against the wind

I’ll fight against the wind
I’ll fight against the wind
I’ll fight against the wind

We won’t stop when they say so
We won’t stop when they say so
We won’t stop when they say so
We won’t stop when they say so
We won’t stop when they say so
We won’t stop when they say so
We won’t stop when they say so
I’ll fight against the wind

I’ll fight against the wind
