Layla #3 - Black Mud

Layla returns with the title track from her second EP Black Mud, a song which combines the luscious, dramatic soundscapes heard on "Smokestacks" with the beauty and intimate lyrics that initially pulled me towards her on her gorgeous debut EP New Year.

"Black Mud" aims to hit at your emotions, that much becomes clear after mere seconds as piano twinkles are joined by a string orchestra and Layla's soulful voice, they ebb and flow in perfect harmony with the instrumentation, one moment delicate, tender and pure, the next strong, passionate flourishes.

The result leaves me swooning for more and thankfully more is exactly what we can have, the five track Black Mud EP was released yesterday with limited physical copies of the EP available here.
