The infinite colour
Marking out Alt-J, Grimes and Radiohead amongst others as key influences, her three tracks on Soundcloud certainly pay tribute to Claire Boucher, and Daughter, another of her inspirations. A classically trained violinist, her music shows a keen knowledge of harmony; The Creature is a choppy, whirlwind of Jones’ stunning vocals and a Grimes-esque chorus section which, if truth be told, lacks a little gusto in the production at times, yet showcases a wealth of talent and potential. The track that really caught my attention is the folkier The Infinite Colour, that’s less quirky electronica, and more just out-and-out intelligent pop. Despite a few issues surrounding production, the talent is undoubtedly there, and with time (which Lupa has plenty of) and perhaps a little direction, there’s no predicting just how far Lupa could go.
