[New Song Of The Week] Lupa – Statues
What were you doing when you were sixteen? Well, probably not making world-class indie music, and certainly not shooting a music video around your local port in the middle of the night.
Imogen Jones, the name she goes by in real life, is a typical DIY musician. Lupa is not afraid of writing her own tracks, producing them herself or releasing them without support of a record label. Every instrument on the track, including the violin, is self-recorded. Even her brand new music video is a home-made piece of art. One shot, one kill, co-directed by her mother.
Lupa is indie in its truest form and with that attitude this Sydneysider wins it in the unavoidable comparison with that other Oceania resident, Lorde.
Statues is her first single and will be part of a 5-track EP that is due to be released later this year. We already have high hopes for her.
