There has been no stopping the Hampshire, UK-based singer-songwriter Laura Loh since she released her debut EP in 2020. She has been lauded by BBC Introducing, taken to stages at Weyfest, ValeFest and Westival, and even recorded vocals at the infamous Abbey Road Studios.
Now, she’s here with her optimistic blend of alt-pop and folk, Morning Light, which brings her background of classical and jazz music into the luminous mix, which serves as the perfect reminder of the pleasure we can take by simple yet stunning facets of nature. Yet, cleverly, Morning Light is simultaneously a parable of the radiance that the right people can spark within us. My soul feels infinitely lighter for hearing the emotional depth in Loh’s smooth vocal lines and the intricately ascending melodies. Loh knew exactly where to greet you with pools of shimmering reverb for transcendent effect. We can’t wait to hear what follows.
Morning Light was officially released on March 4th. You can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.
