British singer Låpsley first caught our ear with the delicate delivery of her gently electronically-induced pop tracks "Station" and "Painter (Valentine)" before inking a deal with XL Recordings last year. Since then, she was named one of the acts on BBC's Sound of the Year 2015 long list alongside Years & Years, Kwabs and Novelist.
Today the singer debuted her newest single "Hurt Me" as the Hottest Record on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show. With her distinctly aching vocals, Låpsley digs into the pain of a past relationship as bone-chilling keys and synth swells freeze over with an icy vengeance as vindicating as it is catchy. Like the XX or London Grammar before her, Låpsley packs a powerful emotional punch with a hypnotic ability that marks her as one of the most promising new artists out there. Listen to "Hurt Me" along with her B-side "Burn" below. You can also stream it HERE or buy it HERE out now on XL Recordings.
