Edinburgh has a long history of adopting the music of Black America as its own.
The city was a hub for the Northern Soul scene, before latterly turning its hand towards rave with the epic, decade-spanning Pure night.
Packed with grit and soul, the production is crystal clear, allowing LAW's voice to shine through. Title track 'Haters' has a genuine bite, with the singer choosing to focus on those on the fringes of society.
As she said recently: "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."

'Haters and Gangsters' is set to be released on February 3rd.
