Lulu James – Falling
|Lulu James - Falling|
Release Date: Out Now
Southshields star Lulu James is fast becoming one of my favourite young British artists to emerge in 2016 and that is no mean feat. New single ‘Falling’ fits nicely in to James’ self-professed genre of 21st Century Soul as the opening bars throb and pulse with organic feeling electro beats. Lulu James has a voice that is part Motown and part Laura Mvula but absolutely dripping in soul as her dusky tones glide from the almost shy verses in to the more confident and proud chorus vocals. There is a sparse element to this single that may seem like a missed opportunity but to me this is just giving one of the UK’s most talented voices the room to swoop and soar without bumping in to anything else. Classy, real classy.
