Over the course of 2014, fast-emerging singer, songwriter and producer Holly 'Låpsley' Fletcher has become one of the most hotly tipped new UK artists around. Through beautifully crafted songs such as "Station" and "Painter (Valentine)", the 18-year old, Southport, England-raised artist has created a unique sonic identity, mixing sparse, minimal electronic production with gorgeous, emotive songwriting.
Now, following a deal with XL Recordings, Låpsley will release her debut Understudy EP on January 5th, 2015. Lead track "Falling Short" – which has received close to a quarter of a million Souncloud plays in less than a month – is available to purchase from today (October 24th) as part of the Anne Mac Presents 2014 album. It will then get a full, standalone release on the Understudy EP, which will be available on 12" vinyl and download and will feature three further brand new tracks.
The full Understudy EP track list is:
1. Falling Short
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com/p/anonymous.html.
