The Last Time is the beautifully shimmering new release from Kotomi, the moniker of LA-based musician Lauren Hillman. The song was born out of the tragedy which Hillman experienced last year. She explained to Gorilla vs Bear, “two amazing women passed away last year that were a big part of my childhood, and this song was inspired by them. It’s about love, loss, and the fragility of life.”

The result of such a tragic experience is the defiantly uplifting The Last Time, a song in which she looks back emotionally on the last time she spoke to the people she lost, over a bed of rousing drum patterns, glimmering synths and soaring choruses. Listen below.
