There’s nothing British soul songstress Laura Mvula has brought to the table thus far that we haven’t liked. Already compared by some in the British media to Emeli Sandé, Laura’s music may be a little less mainstream, but conversely it’s a whole lot more captivating.
Take the official video to her new single ‘She’, in which a young girl skips into a home where we find a woman presumably in labour. Over the next three minutes, we join a journey; a touching account of a life lived through love, death, anger, heartbreak and ultimately new hope.
And this glorious three minutes of vision is set against the backdrop of Laura’s gorgeous soul vocal and an easy, stripped back soundtrack.
