Having featured on Big Narstie‘s album track ‘Help’ on his 2018 album ‘BDL Bipolar’, Laville recently performed the track live on Big Narstie’s Channel 4 show. He’s also picked up tastemaker support from the likes of Complex who premiered his single ‘Thirty One’ and called it a "A Cool And Breezy Coming Of Age Tale".
 
Debut album ‘The Wanderer’ was steered by the expert hand of producer Tristan Longworth, built during the summer months with a crack team of musicians. Indeed, if ‘The Wanderer’ sounds fresh then that’s because it was, with Laville often using first takes. “It’s almost like the lights have come on,” he says. “I wanted it to be as pure as possible, really. I’ve made it now. And I love it.”

Fascinated by cinema and poetry, Laville’s lyrics have this narrative thrust that digs a little deeper than most. Citing the work of auteurs like Tarantino and Scorsese as a major influence, it’s intertwined with his own life, his own experiences. He comments: “The album is like a round up of a lot of things that have happened… from when I was really young to just now. Things I have felt forever.”

Easy’ is a reflection on his gritty North London roots, and how that gave him his appetite to seek out something more than the everyday, while soulful standout ‘The Answer’ is about toxic relationships, where it becomes like “a drug – you know you shouldn’t but you do, and it feels good.”
Laville - The Wanderer is currently priced at a special preorder rate and will revert to full price on release. The release date of 19th July 2019 is estimated and subject to change.
