South Londoner Laolu serves up slo-mo R&B jams which are catching the ear of some of the UK’s leading tastemakers.
Over recent months, they’ve gone a bundle on her sultry sounds and lyrical authenticity, which tackles head–on the bouts of depression that have sporadically stalled her music-making.
It’s raw stuff; thoughts and feelings laid bare with a soulful touch, while lush electronics and glitchy percussion keep things moving at pace.
Here, the Katy B and Little Simz collaborator drops the new video to her latest track, How To Feel, which was filmed in Paris by searchmike.
Laolu says: ‘I got to vibe and really connect with the song the much more during the filming. We tried to flip its themes of insecurity and uncertainty on its head, by working with fun outfits and bright colours. I thought the dichotomy between the visual aesthetic and song was interesting and I’m really excited for everyone to enjoy this video.’
