Gritty, soulful newcomer...

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.

With Young Fathers resonating in our eardrums, Clash is delighted to catch up with LAW. The singer was a Ones To Watch artist last year, and her new EP 'Haters and Gangsters' is bound to impress.

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."

Check out 'Haters' below.

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