Låpsley has finally found a balance. ‘I’m now in this beautiful middle space’, she says. ‘But you need to experience the extremes to learn where that is.’
After an explosive rise to fame as a teenager, when she first uploaded her minimal, mournful self-produced electronica to SoundCloud, Merseyside raised Holly Fletcher’s debut album Long Way Home was released to critical acclaim on XL in 2016. Singles Hurt Me and Falling Short confirmed her as one of the most exciting new songwriting talents, whilst DJ Koze’s disco edit of Operator produced an instant dancefloor classic.
Extensive touring followed as Holly honed her craft as a writer and performer, her first proper gig was at Glastonbury, she’s since gone on to play Coachella, All Points East and countless other festivals.
The show is part of Knowsley Music Festival 2023, tickets are also still available for their Michael Head and The Red Elastic Band show on 10 November, see here for tickets.
