With her second release, Nice, Cape Town-based singer/songwriter Luh’ra harnesses a purity of sound and story that reveal an artist on the cusp of reaching a wider, global audience.
The seven-track record – the follow-up to her 2019 debut EP Luh’ra Luv – takes the indie soul that Luh’ra has been sharing with audiences for the past five years and gently, and quite beautifully, expands it. Subtle notes of jazz, silky R&B and smooth beats now also help propel an intimate journey through the multiple facets of human connection that Luh’ra sketches out on Nice bringing the artist into the sonic terrain occupied by artists like Lianne La Havas, Cleo Sol and Raveena.
“I took it as an opportunity to grow – especially in terms of the musicality of my work,” says Luh’ra of her 2022 release.
Give it all is the first single of the upcoming NICE EP and features AndyMkosi.
“As women we often fall into our maternal ways of wanting to give our everything to the ones we love, which can often be at the expense of our own well being. In Give It All, Luh’ra gets into the mindset of what it can feel like giving your everything to a situation that does not give back the same in return. Andy Mkosi shares a rap verse on the track which adds more of a narrative perspective to what that sort of situation looks like. “ Says Luh’ra of Give It All.
Give it All is released with a music video directed by Andrea Loupis and edited by Nic Loupis featuring dancers Isabella de Lima and Quanita Allie.
