Låpsley - Painter

This lovely 17 year old from the UK with the moniker Låpsley is absolutely lovely. First off, all the vocals seem to be from her cause as she fuckin' eloquently says ' btw, no co-vocalist, aint nobody got tym fo dat' and that's just endearing as hell. You know how whispery The XX are? Well this chick is more whispery and more timid sounding than ever, but she somehow captures a sadness and joy at the same time in these tracks. I first heard 'Station' and I was pretty speechless. There aren't many elements in the song but it's the sum of all the parts that will really take your breath away.

 

Her newest song "Painter (valentine)" is perfect for all you single people out there for this Valentine's day. This reminds me a lot of Shy Girls or How to Dress Well because of the subtle R&B undertones with which she sings. Take a listen and you'll understand why I'm so smitten with this young artist's work.
