Lois has managed to gain a fantastic reputation within the music industry over the past couple of years. The Leeds-based artist has not only released music to a quickly growing fanbase, but she has also played huge venues and gigs. Pair this with radio play from Radio 1 Future Pop with Mollie King, Radio 1 Introducing with Gemma Bradley, BBC Introducing Lancashire with William Wolstenholme and BBC Introducing West Yorkshire, it’s quite clear to see how she’s become such a powerful force in the music industry.
Her latest offering comes in the form of highly anticipated album “Strange Men.” Featuring previously released singles “Strong, “Strange Men,” “The Way You Are” and “Twist in the Wind,” the E.P sheds light on track “Running.” Featuring lo-fi drums, heartwarming synths and soulful vocals, the track is sure to pick you up and pull you in. “Running” offers a different dynamic to the E.P and showcases a vulnerable side to Lois.
Speaking on the track “Running”, she says, “‘Running’ is about the connection you feel with a loved one after they’ve gone, feeling their presence in the most unexpected ways. I wrote this about processing grief. I lost someone very dear to me a few years ago. Navigating grief for anyone is difficult but as a young person it was extremely hard. I’m writing about trying to feel someone’s presence after they’re gone. Dreaming of them and it being so clear you thought it was real. … For me, it’s being out in the rain because it feels like they’re there with me.”
With huge projects in the works, Lois should be on your radar – for sure.
