It’s hard to believe that it was already four years ago when a 19-year old Låpsley released one of the most promising debut records in recent memory in the spectacular, “Long Way Home”. Songs like “Hurt Me,” “Falling Short” and “Operator” are still on heavy rotation for us (the latter thanks in part to DJ Koze’s popular Disco remix), and Through Water is an exciting next phase for the songwriter and producer.

That was the first track I wrote for the record. I’ve been touring since I was eighteen and then took a year off for many reasons, trying to recharge. I wrote it in quite a difficult place from the point of view of a version of myself in the future that knew her shit and was more confident. It’s funny, because now when I sing it it’s my present. I originally wrote and produced that track in my flat in Manchester just with a little home set-up. Then I reproduced it with Peter Grady who has a project called Joy Orbison. I re-did a lot of the synth lines in his studio.”

Låpsley’s early work came with a certain elegance that she’s certainly built upon on last December’s These Elements EP. Two songs from that EP, “My Love Was Like The Rain” and “Ligne 3” will also appear on Through Water and show the exquisite production and distinct vocal duality that put Låpsley on our radar to begin with.

An electro-pop music with slow and measured rhythms, all accompanied by a voice to fall in love. Finesse and excellent fuel economy, the young British singer Lapsley book a great EP that points to a nagging R & B and languorous.
Handsome as hell.

Taken from the forthcoming album, Through Water. Available 20th March on XL Recordings.
