LIANNE LA HAVAS
velvet-voiced londoner, lianne la havas has emerged as one of the uk's most exciting new talents.
after the release of her critically acclaimed debut ep 'lost & found', lianne signed to warner bros & now releases a 2nd ep. 'forget' is a post-break-up retaliation song about lianne being dumped & then a year later asked to sing on a song by the ex. next up is a live version of the charming & romantic 'au cinema', a musical soufflé that rises to perfection showing of lianne's beautifully smokey, vibrato-rich croon. the gorgeous & understated 'gone' sounds like unplugged erykah badu. 'same as me', recorded on garage band, opts for simple instrumentation allowing lianne's exquisite voice to do all the talking. finishing off is a genre-flipping rework of 'forget' by west london producer two inch punch.
