Kyla La Grange, Cut Your Teeth
After turning heads with her 2012 debut album Ashes, British singer/songwriter Kyla La Grange returns brighter, bolder and with an interesting shift towards a more subtle emotional, electronic pop smartness. Her upcoming second longplayer, Cut Your Teeth illustrates this tasty new direction for Watford’s favourite daughter. Have a squizz at the above title-track and see for yourself.
The song is a sexy slow jam with the accompanying video looking like someone threw The Mighty Boosh at Daft Punk’s Around The Word and then drenched the whole thing in ultra-violet amazingness. Now that is the kind of video we can dig. An absolute visual delight. Yum.
