There has been an industry buzz about Liverpudlian “ambient electro” artist Låpsley (real name Holly Fletcher) for about a year but I just couldn’t get into her music. However, her song Falling Short has grown on me, and she looks likely to appear in many a “sound of 2015” list over the next two months, so it seems like a good time to feature her now. She shares both label and management with Adele, which gives me hope that these quiet, introspective songs might end up paving the way for something more commercial in the future. She’s only 18, after all – surely too young to be a complete bore?
