Laura Mvula. Worry about the fact that you might not have heard of her yet. This song has stuck with both Joe and I since hearing her on All Songs Considered in May. Her album in it’s entirety is beautiful, often trancelike. Honestly, it’s rare that I am jones’ing for singer songwriters (especially female ones.) Her music moves fluidly yet slow, it has a different depth then usual ballads. I read up on her that she is The Director of a Gospel choir. Makes sense.
Must Add: The song above & “That’s Alright” – fit in perfectly with my ‘listen up yo” series on Spotify.
Sooo, did you listen yet? What do ya think?
Joe can’t stop dancing to it, neither can I. He also thinks she’s “really pretty.” We concluded that she reminds us a bit of Amy Winehouse (they grew up within two hours of each other.)
