Today’s Discovery for Friday, March 6, comes to us from North London (via Italy and Australia). Lyves (AKA Francesca Bergami) is pretty fresh on the scene. She released another single, “Visions” last year, and performed on the Introducing Stage at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, but aside from that has mostly been working on her debut EP, due out later this spring. The recently released “Shelter” is the first track we’ve heard from that record, and it’s a beauty. The track is pretty stripped back, letting Bergami’s incredible voice (I feel a combination of Beth Gibbons (Portishead) and Sade) take center stage. It’s a really lovely introduction to an up-and-coming artist, and I expect good things out of her in the future.
