If the week's got you spent, Laura Mvula is sure to be the antidote with her uplifting soulful sound. The Birmingham, UK, native released her debut single just months ago (November 2012) and has already been met with much acclaim.
“I’ve never been particularly good at articulating what my music sounds like … I’d say it’s sort of jazzy, but not really jazz, and I’m trying to work with orchestral instruments.” Mvula states in this London Evening Standard article that hails her as "The Voice of 2013".
Here are a couple of videos to get you energised for the weekend and beyond (RSS readers click here to view videos):
