We’ve said it once and we’ll happily say it again, the Scottish artist LVRA is one of the exciting acts coming out of the British scene right now with fusing her rich Chinese musical heritage into her lush alternative R&B soundscape. Her celestial voice draws you in before her compelling lyrics entrance you and then the comes in to put you in a state of bliss that you’ll never want to leave.
This Friday she unveiled her debut EP to the world title LVCID and, as expected, she delivers a series of outstanding tracks that come together to give a euphonic experience from start to finish. Just one listen to this piece will leave you speechless and begging for more.
Her main intention of this EP was to paint Chinese culture in a positive light in the wake of COVID-19, especially with racist attacks on Chinese students in Britain on the rise. She showcases this culture through the production in tracks like Ride where the opening is played on a Bamboo flute and in Wall where the Guzheng played over some deep entrancing beats as her vocal soar majestically over in both tracks. It’s this sound that defines LVRA as something extraordinary, no one out there right now is doing what she’s doing and that’s why this EP is a storming success.
She’s special and the more I learn about her sound the more captivated I am by it. A future innovator and icon of this industry for sure.
