Review: Kyla La Grange, Ashes (Chess Club)

First published in Reviews by

Kyla performed at the Festibelly festival near Lymington last summer and now with this stunning first album the world is her Oyster.

A buzz has been building around the Watford-born singer and now her mesmerising debut is doing justice to comparisons to Kate Bush.

Kyla’s overwhelming motif is one of lonesome, haunting folk, but there’s a rock tinge in Been Better, a touch of trip-hop in Woke Up Dead and the Bush sounds are most evident in Heavy Stone.

Simultaneously delicate and crammed with astounding power, Ashes is a stunning debut from a woman who will soon have the musical world at her feet.
