Listen: Laura Mvula’s Debut Track, ‘She’

Haunting 1am soul sets the scene for a career of huge potential.

Not much is known about Laura Mvula. Yesterday afternoon DIY received a pretty swift email introducing her to our ears, in the form of debut track ‘She’. Almost overnight, blog coverage has sent her name skywards, and she’s close to becoming an end-of-year sensation.

It’s easy to see why. ‘She’ stops you in your tracks: Mvula’s voice is one of a kind, unparalleled in its haunting, touching soulfulness. Not a single duff note, not a second goes by without luring you in further to a beautifully laid-out trap.
