Single Review – Lianne La Havas – What You Don’t Do

London’s Lianne La Havas has made a name of herself as someone providing an alternative edge to modern folk and soul music and she’s backed that up with her recent live performances on Jools Holland in promotion of her upcoming second studio album Blood. The July 31st album follows on from her solid 2012 debut Is Your Love Big Enough and one of her new singles ‘What You Don’t Do’ offers an example of Lianne as an alternative soul artist. The track features warped piano chords set against her clear and smooth vocals. The distorted bass lines also give the song a different type of rhythm whilst remaining serviceable to her confident and soulful melodies that dictate the feel of the song. It’s a refreshing, yet still faithful take on a familiar genre that looks to stand her in good stead for her new album.
