Lapsley is the solo project of one Holly Fletcher, a highly-capable singer and producer of mournful neo-synth-soul. Long Way Home documents some of the wild changes that have resulted from the success of previous albums. This personal touch carries through every aspect of Long Way Home, as Lapsley largely self-produces. On XL Recordings.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd January 2018
Although the music is largely electronic, like Lorde this is mostly not dance pop - with the exception of "Operator" which sounds quite a bit like Sade. This is yet another very impressive debut from a young female musician that will be interesting to follow as she continues to mature. I would put her style a lot closer to Lorde, with a singing voice more like a non-shouting version of Florence & the Machine. It's a testament to the importance of sympathetic arrangements and strong production which this album has in spades.
