We’ve featured Lava La Rue only a handful of times in the past, but the UK songstress continues to make bigger and bigger waves within the music industry. She’s a singer, although her sound doesn’t confine itself to traditional r’n’b parameters, instead exploring other genres and intertwining them, with a firmly alternative feel.
Today, the singer finally delivered a project for fans to get better acquainted, her first since 2019’s Stitches. As just five songs, it’s perhaps more appetizer than full-on meal, however, it’s enough to get lost in the world of Lava La Rue for a good twenty minutes. Butter-Fly opens magnificently with the vintage-esque “Magpie,” a record that will draw you in immediately. “Angel” features WeDidIt’s Deb Never, and was originally released last November. While it also contains a vintage vibe, this one is more ’80s than ’50s. The only other feature comes from Karma Kid on the EP closer, “Lift You Up.”
Take a look at the tracklist below, and stream Lava La Rue’s Butter-Fly. Let us know what you think of her.
