Known for her silky, soulful voice and positive themes of self-acceptance, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lianne La Havas’s new EP ‘Blood (Solo)’ is like chicken soup for your ears. ‘Blood (Solo)’ is comprised of tracks from her past album ‘Blood’, reinterpreted (surprise surprise) as a solo effort — with just Lianne’s voice accompanied by a series of guitars.
As a bonus, the EP also features a brand new song entitled ‘Fairytales’. Her voice — the equivalent of drinking hot cocoa beside a fireplace — is exceptional on this EP. Without the usual instrumentation, this stripped back version allows her voice and lyrical content to shine through with an endearing honesty. Previous fans of her work may however find themselves missing the catchy beats and prominent R&B vibes that are weaved throughout her previous work, and would get stuck in your head for days.
Anyone that likes this EP should check out her previous work which effortlessly combines soul, folk and R&B for a more upbeat, dancey version.
