Spotlight: Laura Welsh releasing ‘Soft Control’

One has to wonder how a young artist from Staffordshire, England goes from fronting an obscure retro-rock indie trio in the late-2000’s to John Legend studio collaborator and London Grammar tour mate in a span of only a few years.

Indeed, the past few have been very good to Laura Welsh: after moving to London in 2009 after her band parted ways, Welsh managed to connect with renowned producers Emile Haynie (Lana del Rey, Eminem) and Dev Hynes, who would help her further develop and hone her sound as a solo artist.

The result is a powerfully simmering intensity, deeply personal lyrics, and a propensity to weave effortlessly between the worlds of singer-songwriter, pop star, and DJ culture, courting solid remixes by emerging producers like Jakwob and CFCF.

By way of context, Welsh’s tracks like lead singleBreathe Me In can draw easy comparisons to the crystalline voice of an Adele or the fierce expansiveness of a Lykke Li.

Last year Welsh posted a raw and compelling piano cover of Kanye’s Yeezus closer ‘Bound’ to her Soundcloud:

She has been releasing a slow drip of singles and remixes in anticipation of her new album, Soft Control, which comes out March 9th on Outsiders/Polydor.
