The 18 year old’s minimal electronica is as icy and crisp as her vocals are warm and uninhibited, and through just a few low-key online releases, she’s set out her stall as an impressive new songwriting force.
Her latest single, Station, provides the perfect accompaniment to the chilly evenings of late summer, almost making the prospect of autumn a welcome proposition.
Testament to its power, the track, together with accompanying ‘B side’ Valentine, has racked up more than 500,000 plays through SoundCloud so far, making her toast of the international blog scene.
Her talents haven’t gone unnoticed in the UK either: in the past six months, she’s picked up a wealth of support from the team at BBC Radio 1, including Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Phil & Alice, and performed at BBC Introducing’s Glastonbury stage.
Holly also scooped the One To Watch prize at Merseyside’s GIT Awards ceremony back in April, which included studio time at Liverpool's legendary Parr Street Studios.
Last week PRS for Music Foundation’s Momentum Music Fund revealed it would support her to record and release her next three EPs, and with one scheduled for release in November, together with a live show at Liverpool Music Week, it looks like Låpsley will be finishing the year on a well deserved high.
