New Music: Laura Welsh – Betrayal

Rating:

London based beauty, Laura Welsh’s music has great gusto. Having worked with artists such as Dev Hynes, Emile Haynie and Robin Hannibal of Rhye on her previous singles Undiscovered, Cold Front and Unravel, she’s already stamping her foot firmly into the alternative soul scene.

In her latest single Betrayal, she has joined forces with British producer and DJ du jour Jakwob. Despite not being an official single release, it’s not something to ignore. As the electro-drum beats scatter through the song, it just draws you in wanting to sway to the music. “I’ve got betrayal on my mind” her voice echoes through the track, like moody thoughts as you lie on the grass in the summer.

This song really does showcase Welsh’s infatuating, soulful tone. Definitely an artist to keep an eye out for, and hear more of in the near-future.
