20 year old singer songwriter LVRA follows up her recent single ‘Girl Like Me’, which attracted the attention of Huw Stephens, with the follow up ‘Wall’, both of which are taken from her upcoming debut EP ‘LVCID’ which is out in May 29th.
Of the track, she says
“I had sacrificed my own happiness for someone else, and only once it was over did I gradually come to realise all the walls, emotionally and creatively, that I placed around our relationship in order to protect it.
Last summer I went to China to get some space after a messy breakup. That trip made me feel so much wonder, and all the natural beauty inspired me to write this EP and finish ‘Wall’. I wanted to turn the pain that I felt into something hopeful.”
That Chinese influence is in evidence in the track, with the use of the traditional guzheng. As well as that, there’s scattered beats, smoky synth lines that bleed into each other and LVRA’s soft, sugary vocal that lashes the track to your heart.
