22-year-old Lola Young has one of those voices. You know, the ones that are impossible to
ignore: made for smoky dark clubs as much as hushed arenas, it’s got a depth, rawness and huskiness that reduces crowds to pin-drop silence.
Where previous releases have seen Lola interrogating her life with honesty, My Mind Wanders And Sometimes Leaves Completely is a new era for the young singer-songwriter. Love is a theme she’ll always tackle in her music, she says – “it’s the most relatable topic, isn't it?” – but on this project she’s fully stepped out of her comfort zone, testing her writing ability to confront new topics, while mining new depths of her creativity.
