BBC introducing-approved artist Courtney Jayd Lumsden – otherwise known as JAYD – has unveiled her latest offering, ‘Lucid Lover’ which covers an agonising topic that we all have encountered in our lifetime – a messy break-up.
Oozing featherly old-school R&B/electro pop layers, that’s so captivating from the very beginning, ‘Lucid Lovers’ features London-based rapper Mirari More, who drops a soothing verse which perfectly complements the echoic soundscapes and Jayd’s delicately well-posed vocals.
