In an entertainment bubble where individuality is somewhat stifled, it is so refreshing to come across a voice or artist who from the very first bar grabs your attention. Granted, I am very late in getting on board the Låpsley train (this track was released a year ago!), but regardless I am very glad that I am finally there.
“Falling Short” is a truly captivating track. The vocal is hauntingly beautiful and the lyrics and backing track lend themselves to a variety of scenarios. XL Recordings have done well to snap this talent up, and I look forward to seeing what comes next.
