Laughing with the Raindrops
So Much For Summer Tour Spring 2022 by LUTFIA
Voice on Shellac by LAUGHING WITH THE RAINDROPS
Lutfia and her all-girl band continue their Spring Tour promoting recently-released EP
“So Much For Summer”. Lutfia is a 20-year-old BIMM student and pop singer-songwriter
from London. “So Much For Summer” which has been described as a ‘sophisticated
collection of pop songs’ incorporates a variety of different styles, including alternative
pop, pop-rock, funk and dance. Each song is unique and different from the rest but her
powerful mezzo-soprano voice and deeply personal lyrics make the project seamlessly
cohesive. Lutfia tells stories of teenage love, mental health struggles and nostalgia, each
song recounting an impactful emotion, person or place in her life.
Inspired by a photo album, Laughing With The Raindrops’ live music performance is
synchronised to a silent movie, Faded Prints: Two young girls find memorabilia in their
attic: a “peculiar” camera, a photo album and a record collection. This is the start of their
inquiry into the past. They make surprising discoveries related to the characters in the
songs. The film and songs tell real life stories, celebrating childhood memories and the
beauty of life in all its light and shade, across time, across continents.
The songs are part of a new album “Voice on Shellac” which will be released on vinyl on
13th April 2022.
