After the neon laced machine gunning of Ms Mr’s latest yesterday, it is time now for something completely different but equally stunning.
“If It Hurts” by London based singer-producer Lyza Jane is the complete antithesis to that high octane, adrenaline fuelled extravaganza. Instead it resides in a deliciously languid lake, with electronics that trickle gorgeously over the muted trip-hop beats. As well as a light 90s vibe to it, it has a restrained, hushed beauty, calm and alluring. The vocals are soft, soothing and captivating, it is the sort of thing you want to hear at 3am, again and again and again.
”If It Hurts” is the first track from the forthcoming debut Lyza Jayne EP.
