The Genre-less and Fabulous Laura Mvula

Thanks to Pretty Much Amazing for unearthing this dazzling gem of an artist, Laura Mvula. What I love about this song is that I can’t pin it down, and don’t know where it’s going, but it is cohesive. It reminds me a lot of Stars, in its mix of dramatic yet light sounds with strings, with a much gentler and jazzier Macy Gray on top because of that smooth yet husky/textured quality, and perhaps even with a bit of Joanna Newsom twang. There is so much music I feel like I can sing along to the first time I hear it, but with this song, I don’t even want to try – I just want to see where it takes me. Looking forward to more great things from this awesome lady.
