It always feels weirdly cool when featuring someone's very first track. This is the case with London-based newcomer Lu.Re.
Her first release titled "Rains" is upbeat, r&b / broken beats-driven Friday afternoon groove kind of track... all that wrapped around her killer vocal abilities.
Speaking on the single, Lu.Re says...
“I started out improvising with a garage beat and some jazz piano chords, and built the rest up from there. I recorded all the instrumentals in my flat in East London. If you listened to the viola and backing vocals separately, you’d probably hear some Overground trains passing by.
The lyrical idea came from my mum when I was at home for the weekend in Bedford. She was a bit teary-eyed and said something like, “it doesn’t rain in this house, it pours”. It was one of those affecting moments that sticks, and it felt natural writing about it - I had most of the lyrics down in an afternoon.”
I feel we should be keeping a close eye on this girl.
