Newcomer Kelsey Lu has debuted her new song ‘Shades of Blue’.
Having shared stages with the likes of Solange, Sampha, Blood Orange, Kelela and Moses Sumney (to name but a few), Kelsey’s latest endeavour follows her stunning debut EP ‘Church’, which received huge amounts of underground acclaim.
“I wrote ‘Shades of Blue; when I was squatting in a leather factory in Hoboken, New Jersey,” says the North Caroline-born artist – “I was really depressed at the time, and my life had flip-flopped in many ways—musically, financially, romantically and, really, soulfully. Yet, I was writing a lot more than I had been and this song is a manifestation of that point in my life. For me, it was a glimpse of hopefulness and peace from within that depression, and I can only hope it will bring a similar moment of peace to the listener.”
