Back in 2013/14, I discovered Låpsley, a young singer who used to secretly record songs in her bedroom and get some attention on the internet while her mom had no clue about it.
Her singles “Painter” and “Station” were some of the minimalist, beautiful songs released on her own recordings. Something that managed Låpsley to get the attention of XL Recordings.
She then released her EP “Understudy” last year, another minimalist pop gem EP with fabulous songs such as “Falling Short” & “Brownlow”, that I immediately had to add to my vinyl collection.
More recently the talented artist who was nominated for the BBC Sound of 2015 shared a double single “Hurt Me / Burn“, two singles that slightly expressed Låpsley‘s will to do something bigger than her previous minimalist record.
By the way, “Hurt Me” was the 79th track of our Top 100 of the best tracks of the year 2015.
The harmonious “Love Is Blind” and its beautiful instrumental really shows that Låplsey is ready for something bigger than what she offered before.
“Love Is Blind” is the first single taken from Låpsley upcoming debut album “Long Way Home”, due to be released on March 4th via XL Recordings.
