Today, our new music spotlight is on Luvia
Location: Brighton, UK
Line-up: Maddie Vincent aka Luvia (vocals/guitar)
About: Luvia (aka Maddie Vincent) is a hugely talented teenage dream-pop songwriter from Brighton. Releasing her stunning debut single ‘For You‘, on My Little Empire Records, she’s picked up a string of accolades from the likes of DIY as well as radio play on Radio X. Her voice soars with an ethereal howl as it sits atop a simple bed of Daughter-inspired guitars and soft, pulsing synths channeling the emotive storytelling of Stevie Nicks with the lo-fi sonics of Mazzy Star and the pop stylings of Lana Del Ray, it’s a compelling glimpse at a songwriter whose journey is only just beginning. With appearances at The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City, her ascendancy as one of the UK’s most exciting emerging talents looks all but assured.
What Hidden Herd say: A tender heartsong, ‘For You‘ is delivered with unrivalled sincerity and resonance. Vincent’s vocals haunt with a touching afternote, captivating listeners within an embrace that commands your full attention.
The Brighton singer is playing at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton on May 18th.
