Purveyor of ambient heartbreak folk-prog, Sydney based solo artist Lëura returns with her highly anticipated second single ‘Shallows’. The poetic sweetheart left airwaves reeling after the widespread acclaim of debut single ‘Drifter’, which received substantial support from triple j and community radio, and praise from heavyweight online press across the UK, Canada and Europe.
Pushing forward off this wave of success, ‘Shallows’ paints a heart-wrenching representation of helplessly watching a loved one slowly drown in depression, whilst simultaneously sinking into the illness yourself. Lyrically, the ballad also echoes the complex agony of unrequited love, where both sides end up unintentionally pulling each other under. “And I sink trying to swim to you / I’m sorry if I sink you too”.
‘Shallows’ will be followed by the full length 8-track EP, engineered and produced by Lachlan Mitchell (The Jezabels).
