At a mere 16 years old, Imogen Jones is already making sonic waves under her moniker Lupa.
With people from Brooklyn to Brisbane raving about her electro-pop prowess, Lupa’s experience surprisingly lies in classical music with the artist currently finishing her studies in violin at the Conservatorium High School in Sydney. Her introduction into the world of contemporary music came in the form of her recently released debut single Statues which is already pricking ears across the blogosphere.
Conceptually, the video for Statues centres around conveying a “frozen” feeling, resonating lyrically with the track. A cold, blue colour grading and the fact that the video was all shot in one take is enough to cause chills…Let alone the the extraordinary talent of the luminary responsible for the song.
Introducing Lupa, a 16-year-old indie electronica singer-songwriter from Sydney otherwise known as Imogen Jones.
A classically trained musician, Lupa comes to the indie scene with a fresh take on electronic production. Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of artists, from Grimes to Laura Marling and Radiohead, she integrates her skills as a violinist with synthesised instrumentation and delicate vocal layering to create a unique, alluring sound.
Proving herself an intuitively gifted songwriter and musician Lupa writes, records and produces each of her tracks entirely independently, delivering beautifully textured electronic pop that has a lyrical maturity far beyond her years. Her debut single Statues is a direct, poetic and musically sophisticated window into the heart of today’s teenage girl; an unsettling and unforgettable listen.
Statues is out now available online and through iTunes with an undoubtedly impressive EP set to follow in the coming months.
