Discovery: La Loye

La Loye is a Dutch alt folk artist whose mellow new track I Only Hear You In My Song will have you falling a little bit in love with her.

By Graeme Smith

The track is characterised by melancholic acoustic guitar and sweeping, haunting vocals. The story unfolds inevitably, with seductive imagery and a heart-breaking crescendo. While I was listening, I was reminded of a couple of masters of emotional acoustic – Elliot Smith and Conor Oberst.

Already making her name known in the blogosphere (previously she’s obtained the title of “most blogged about” on HypeMachine) La Loye is definitely one to watch in the alternative music scene. You can now count us among her fans. Check out I Only Hear You In My Song below.
