Law Announces Debut Ep 'Haters And Gangsters' Due Out 3 February 2014

If you missed the waves set in motion last year by debut track 'Hustle', then allow us introduce you to the primal soul-pop of LAW and her forthcoming EP 'Haters and Gangsters', due 3 February.

"All good music is soul music." Wise words from Edinburgh resident Lauren Holt - the voice behind LAW and debut EP 'Haters and Gangsters'. Having already caught the eye of those in the know with the darkly hued primal soul-pop of last year's stand out track 'Hustle', LAW's EP, due out on 3 February via showlovepeoplenowkiss, continues in a similar vein but is now ready to capture the wider world's attention.

"I see the beauty in darkness, the mystery and sickness of it" says LAW of the menacing, pulsating, seven track offering. "I am much more interested in so called dis-functional people, because in the words of Dylan they've 'nothing left to conceal'. I want the darkness inside of me to produce something that is rooted in feeling: Soul music. I try to write lyrics that are rooted in something, whether it be personal experience or the experience of someone I have imagined. I don't want to be precise. I want to emphasise the murkiness of it all."

Murky is definitely a quality reflected in the production of lead track 'Haters', a fuzzy, lo-fi number whose cyclic momentum rolls over a clattering percussive back bone under that voice - a subdued yet powerful, intoxicating and deep siren call. A unifying call, especially when it comes to the addictive refrain "fickle sickle fickle sickle ya yaa".

And this is only the first track to be lifted from what is sure to be one of the year's best EP's. More to come 3 February.

LAW is touring the UK in February with Young Fathers.
