West-London artist Lava La Rue has shared their long-awaited new EP Butter-Fly. Recorded in L.A. and London with producers including Isom Innis (Foster The People), Dan Holloway and Courage, Butter-Fly is self-described as Lava’s attempt to ‘redefine what queer music can be; setting the agenda for queer music in the 20s’. Across five dexterous and confident tracks, from the euphoric ‘Angel’ featuring Deb Never, to the dreamy dopamine hit of ‘G.O.Y.D’ (with vocals from Clairo and production from Vegyn), the release marks a new milestone in Lava’s already stellar multi-disciplinary career.
Knowing well the NiNE8 collective founder has a keen ear to London’s constantly-evolving underground music scene, we asked Lava to share their picks of the artists we should have on our radar.
