Låpsley Delivers Dreamy “Falling Short” Performance On ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’
Låpsley made an auspicious late night TV debut on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Friday (January 22) with an enchanting rendition of “Falling Short.” The British singer performed the bleak anthem in the shadows of the largely dimmed stage, forcing the audience/viewers to focus on her soulful vocals. It’s a neat trick that lends an air of sophistication to an already accomplished performance.
The 19-year-old first generated buzz in 2015 with excellent EP Understudy and breakthrough single “Hurt Me.” Låpsley, who is due to perform at Coachella in April, is hoping to take things to the next level with the release of debut LP Long Way Home (due March 4 via XL Recordings). “It’s an autobiography of my emotions and events over the past year,” she says of the album. “Everything that’s happened, I’ve channelled in some way into a song.”
