West London’s Lava La Rue sees the release her debut EP Hi-Fidelity. The rapper, singer and artist has funk, soul and hip-hop influences coursing through the summer vibe of the EP. The title track features her childhood friend Biig Piigg and has a few psychedelic synths holding it all together. The friends also co-founded the Nine8 London art collective. She explained the title in a press release;
“The name “High Fidelity” is a play on words between a musical transition from Lo-Fi (low fidelity) to songs to be played Hi-Fi and also infidelity.”
It was four years ago when Lava La Rue emerged with the Tribe Called Quest-sounding “Widdit.” Since then she has continued to play with her style. Hi-Fidelity comes six months after the indie rock single “Vest & Boxers.” The multi-hyphenate artist has also announced a headlining show on September 29th at London’s iconic Heaven nightclub.
