EP Review: All In Me – Laolu

LAOLU‘s 2018 single, ‘How To Feel’ has got me fired up enough to look out for her debut  EP, ‘All In Me’…and judging from the strong support she received from BBC 1xtra and The Best Line Fits, it seems that I’m not the only one left hanging for the nine-track set.

Kicking off with a moody introduction through single ‘Buffering’, the EP predominantly delves into the haziness of smooth R&B and soul. Fifth effort, ‘Disconnect’, showcases a flair of the blues, intensifying the spine-tingling sensation presented in the EP. ‘So Right’ momentarily breaks away from the collection’s misty theme by injecting a smooth chirpiness of the Afro/reggae-esque bassline.

Those who admire the musical prowess of artist H.E.R, will definitely warm towards the South-East London songstress, who wants to offer the listener a fresh perspective on traditional R&B/Soul – and she does it perfectly through ‘All In Me’. Check her out below:

Song of the Day: How To Feel – Laolu

With her return to the UK music landscape well and truly underway, following her comeback single ‘All In Me’, South East London singer/songwriter LAOLU is not resting on her laurels, as she drills down with a brand new sultry R&B single titled ‘How To Feel’.

Taken from her forthcoming debut EP All In Me, ‘How To Feel’ sees LAOLU take a slight detour from the darker themes on her previous single, to deliver a sweltering R&B offering, while drawing on the superb moody and atmospheric elements of her music that she introduces on ‘All In Me’, underpinned by her exquisite vocal showing, and honest and relatable songwriting.

‘How To Feel’ is taken from her forthcoming debut EP ‘All In Me’…look out for that…but for now, check out this uber slick production from this promising songbird.
