Lupa J – Quiet Here

In the mere 18-months since Sydneysider Lupa J (Imogen Jones) made the transition from classically trained violinist to contemporary electronic artist/producer, a stream of consistently distinctive releases has captured the attention of taste-making music media the world over from The Line Of Best Fit to DIY Magazine, as well as triple j closer to home who named her a finalist in last year’s national Unearthed High competition.

Lupa J - Quiet Here

Now completing her final year of school at Sydney’s selective Conservatorium High (past alumni includes The Presets and some of Australia’s most acclaimed classical talents) Lupa J has delivered ‘Quiet Here’, a beguiling slice of left-of-centre pop that serves to further demonstrate her prowess at fusing organic instrumentation with tasteful electronic production, not to speak of her enchanting vocal ability and lyrical flair that suggests soulfulness well beyond her years.

Lupa J – Quiet Here Lyrics:
It’s quiet here
Words choked behind our tongues
Stuck inside the shaking-fear
Of empty too-tight lungs

I paint pretty pictures
To fill the gaps of your face
The vital missing features
Of an empty boy-shaped space

I never did find you

It’s quiet here
The deafening white walls
Streaked with unshed tears
And scars that seem too small

Crumbling apart
You slipped away softly
I grew strange in your arms
Before you leaned how to hold me

I never did find you

Was it all in my head?
Were you all in my head?

Playing with fire
That was never set alight
Never set flight
We’re safe here
In our quiet not quite right

(Never did find you)
