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:
