Following on from her bewitching single ‘Stay A Little Longer‘ earlier in the year, multi-instumentalist Lots Holloway is back to delight with her debut EP. Raised in a small town in Cornwall, before moving to London to hone her work, she has meticulously crafted these songs in her own unique style and carefully controlled every single aspect of her creations. The sweet expanse of ‘Slow Down’ shares a moral of savouring every moment of this fleeting life, while the superb bass tones of ‘Berry Bones’ are reminiscent of Bowie’s ‘Ashes To Ashes’. ‘Love Me’ sees Lots at her most infectious and accessible, while the stripped back ‘Between You And Me’ shows a whole new side to her, vulnerable and pleading. It’s a stark contrast to the venom infused vocals and experimental soundscapes of her previous single, and really shows Lots’ adaptability as an artist and as a songwriter. This self-taught and single-minded singer/songwriter showcases her talents with passion and purpose. Determined to carve out her own path, Lots is one to watch.
Fans of Lorde, PJ Harvey, Angel Olsen and Halsey should check out her debut EP Slow Down out 4th October.
