She’s a little bit folky and a little bit punky. And she’s written hits for others like Rihanna “Cheers (Drink to That).”
Her name is LP (born Laura Pergolizzi), and she has three LPs of her own under her belt. Now, LP is touring from Los Angeles opening for English glam icon Bryan Ferry, and she comes to DC with Bryan on Saturday, July 23, and Monday, July 25, to open for him at the Lincoln Theatre prior to playing a solo headlining show at U Street Music Hall on Tuesday, July 26.
And LP arrives with new music in the form of a spaghetti-western inspired ballad “Lost on You,” which appears on a new EP, Death Valley, released June 17 on Vagrant Records. The EP was smartly produced by Mike Del Rio from Republic Records’ duo POWERS.
In songs like “Lost on You,” LP hits her stride with her powerful, longing voice coupled in the video with her cinematic sensibilities. (Bryan Ferry surely is proud to have an appropriate tourmate!)
Watch the official music video for “Lost on You” by LP on YouTube:
“Lost on You” hit #3 on Hype Machine’s Popular Chart, and landed #6 on Spotify’s Viral Chart in its debut week. Internationally, “Lost on You” just hit #1 in Greece and #2 in Portugal. So if you suspect good music might be lurking on foreign music charts, you may be right!
Tickets for LP’s headlining performance at U Street Music Hall are available online. Tickets for her show opening for Bryan Ferry are available on Monday, July 25, also online.
