Lial – Embers
London based artist Lial’s latest release ‘Embers’ draws you in with it’s haunting, melancholic arrangement. With a layer of electronic pop in it’s core, the hypnotic number was release back in February ahead of her second EP ‘Made to Break’, which follows this summer. About the struggle of removing yourself from an addictive yet destructive scenario, the single feels relatable.
Laced with a dark, yet wistful edge, Lial describes it as “the recognition there is something good that could have been, even as you try to draw a line under it all.” Embers is the first release of Lial’s that I’ve heard and it certainly won’t be the last. Co-written with producer Gregor McWilliam, the track was also mastered by John Davies. With an EP soon to follow, this singer-songwriter is one to watch with a captivating vocal ability.
