Single Review – Lapsley – Hurt Me

One of XL Recordings more recent signings is the singer-songwriter Holly Lapsley Fletcher or ‘Låpsley’ as she’s known as, from Merseyside. She’s already been highlighted as a rising star on the British music scene with her self produced Trip Hop and Chillwave sound which is replicated well with her new single ‘Hurt Me’. The song balances the soft beats and sunken piano chords against her strong and able vocal as it explores it’s various tones in it’s enforced isolation from the shifting sounds and beats. Though it may not be the dance inducing Trip Hop of AlunaGeorge, it is certainly the contemplative side of the genre and can be appreciated in it’s own way. Expect an album from the 19 year old at some point next year.
