'Smokestacks' is all crescendo. It's weighty, and threatens to burst into pure bliss even in its quietest moments. Every word LAYLA sings is underlined by orchestrated bombast, she takes an army of backing singers by the hand, and percolates through rousing brass, soaring strings, and deep piano chords. Her voice is the track's rise and swell, the anchoring element of sublime sophistication in a song full of them.

LAYLA plays her debut headline show at London's The Social on April 29th. Tickets are on sale now. Stream 'Smokestacks' below. We have a feeling it might be the song that shoots her into the stratosphere.
