Record Label: XL Recordings
Over the course of 2015, fast-emerging 19 year-old singer, songwriter and producer Holly ‘Låpsley’ Fletcher has become one of the most hotly tipped new UK artists around the globe with Complex calling her “one of the most promising new artists out there” and Stereogum describing her as “Adele crossed with the xx.” Through beautifully crafted songs such as “Hurt Me,” “Station” and “Falling Short,” the Liverpool, England-raised artist has created a unique sonic identity, mixing sparse, minimal electronic production with gorgeous, emotive songwriting, which has garnered her over 22 million streams.
Låpsley came to North America earlier this year, off of the release of her Understudy EP on XL Recordings, and played to sold-out audiences in NYC, Los Angeles and Toronto. She returned to NYC in November to play sold out shows at Rough Trade and Mercury Lounge in which she performed new material from her impending debut album, out March 4th on XL Recordings. “Hurt Me,” Låpsley’s latest single, further cements her position as a prodigious new talent. To date she’s garnered ‘Best New Artist’ mentions from Buzzfeed, NPR, KCRW, Nylon, & Elle.
