Layla #2 - Smokestacks

Facebook / listentolayla.com

On January's introducing Layla post I was talking about 'a collection of gently melancholic tracks full of sweet, sweet charm and exquisite melody that leaves me all tingly inside' and now I feel a little bit silly because the London based singer returns with a "Smokestacks" and it's not really any of those things.

Instead, slowly rising from a sombre piano based intro "Smokestacks" grows with dramatic effects, Layla's powerful lead vocals and strong harmonies to become a full on pop-hit banger that you can expect to here on the radio all summer long. It's taken from her new EP Black Mud which is due on April 28th with a debut London headline show at The Social the very next day to celebrate - details.
