We only heard of Laura Mvula this morning (via), but we doubt that’ll we’ll ever mistake her music for anyone else’s. First, there’s her voice, which has that powerful wow effect that will stop anyone in their tracks the first time they hear it. On “Green Garden,” it seems almost as if she’s holding back on really opening up the pipes even, but it still readily stands out. Then there’s the song’s construction, with its delicate and immediately catchy backing track. It builds in intensity, but in a way that never distracts from Mvula’s voice. It’s “See Line Woman” for 2013. The Londoner’s debut full length, Sing To The Moon is out February 22. Check out “Green Garden” here, and check out previous single “She” below:
