Every so often you come across an artist that has something a little special, if you a lucky you catch them early on and get to watch them grow. We are not sure how we came across Lianne La Havas years ago but remember listening to her demos on MySpace a lot!! (when MySpace was still cool) I think some how through Paloma Faith as she does backing vocals for her. Lianne had a such unique style, lovely electric guitar playing and a vocal tone that was full of colour.
Well fast forward to now and we have been watching and waiting for her to release for a while, then this week out of the blue she released not one but two EP’s like london busses hey!!
Been a good week for new music from Lianne La Havas, Fink, Clock Opera and Mayer Hawthorne.
1st official release “Lost & Found” is great and is being released on 10″ vinyl happy times!!
The 2nd is a Live Free EP from recording in LA and its insanely good considering its live! You have to pinch your self sometimes when listening to it as not a note wrong and vocals just sounds amazing. During the chorus on “Don’t Wake Me” her voice soars and the transition between full voice and falsetto is perfect, when you hear it send shivers down your spine and we can’t stop listening it and singing along.
But what has always stood out with Lianne is her song writing! Such interesting unique style, wonderful lyrics and she is only 21!!
