For Laura Mvula, this is the calm before the storm.
The rising Birmingham artist is already a critical darling, nominated in the BBC Sound of 2013 poll and making the shortlist for the Critics Choice award at the BRITs. The next 12 months could well see the songwriter become a household name, with her sultry, soulful tones capable of seizing control of the nation.
Debut single 'She' was a fantastic introduction, with Laura Mvula now preparing a follow up. 'Green Garden' is a moving, beautiful piece of songwriting which matches a subtle, underplayed arrangement to moments of effortlessly soaring vocals.
Out on February 24th, the track will only serve to increase the hype around Laura Mvula. Patching together songs during her spare time as a teacher, the Birmingham artist is set to release her debut album 'Sing To The Moon' on March 4th.
For now, though, fans can feast on 'Green Garden'.
