Lulu James - Be Safe
Her soundcloud page dubs her with the sobriquet of '21st Century Soul', but Lulu James is so much more than that. Her track Be Safe is a rich, deeply atmospheric affair, a bit like a female version of James Blake channelled through the silky, pop sensibilities of Jessie Ware. Production wise, Be Safe is beautifully minimal, allowing James' vocals to shine through all the more - and shine they do, radiant with a kind of blissful beauty that in its best moments is properly breathtaking.
