If the speed of Lapsley’s ascent seems remarkable — at 19 years old, the past year has seen her move from sixth form college student to recording Long Way Home, her debut album for XL — it is testament to her talent, her musical and emotional maturity, as well as to the fact that she is that exceedingly rare thing: a young artist who knows her own mind about her music, her production, herself.

Although she played piano, classical guitar, drums and oboe, Låpsley did not have a particularly creative upbringing; she was an academic all-rounder, her life equal parts schoolwork, classical music, a growing interest in a career in science. “But I was a creative person being suppressed,” she says. “And I think what drove me to music was a fascination with this whole world that I didn’t know. It excited me. And if I hadn’t had this conservative upbringing I wouldn’t have been so drawn to it.” In her early teens she discovered electronic music, began going to raves near her home in Merseyside, joined a band. “I was really into ambient music, and the space, and the beauty of it – it kind of reminded me of some of the classical pieces I knew,” she says.

Though she had already written songs on guitar, now she began to experiment with their production. “I enjoyed shaping them into a song that was sonically exactly how I wanted it to be,” she explains. “Over the past few years, I’ve come to know how to make the soundscapes in my head.”
