Låpsley has returned with her new EP These Elements, out now through XL Recordings.
It’s the first new music since the release of her acclaimed debut album Long Way Home over three years ago – a record that distilled the yearning and heartache of teenage love and cemented Låpsley’s position as one of the most exciting new artists in the UK. The album was hugely influential (not least on Billie Eillish, who name-checked it as a major influence on her sound) and would spawn one of the biggest club tracks in recent years (DJ Koze’s remix of ‘Operator’).
The EP finds Låpsley leaving behind her teenage years and entering adulthood with a whole sense of newfound confidence, clarity and self-awareness. Four years; four elements; four songs. In Låpsley’s own words: “Emotional love, physical desire, depression and self-worth. Everything I’ve gone through in the last four years is in these four songs.” A powerful statement on womanhood, These Elements begins to establish Låpsley as a captivating voice of her generation.
