Låpsley’s videos always have this stunning way of featuring close-ups of her that gives the viewer a private and personal experience. Here latest video is from her single ‘Falling Short’, and it’s an stunning piece that lets you yet again get up close to this 18-year-old Liverpool song-stress.
She sits in a dark empty room front and center, her blonde hair a sharp contrast to the classic black and white video. The camera spins as she supports a young man in her arms. And in some moments you can look right into her eyes and watch her face turn to emotion, and she pours out her vital force. What is she ‘Falling Short’ from? Is She talking about herself or some else? Depression, Staying sober, Mental illness? Or is it something more cerebral, something I haven’t even thought of. All these thing are going through my head as I try and speculate the meaning of the song compared to the movement on the screen. The dance between the two set to music becomes the real enjoyment of this video.
She’s already made the BBC Music Sound of 2015 list and is following in the footsteps of Adele, JamieXX and FKA Twigs by signing to the lustrous XL Recordings label. Her new EP ‘The Understudy’ is due out next month and is sure to be the start of something much bigger for her. 2014 gave us allot of great female vocalist, and Låpsley is at the very top for us!
