The nu-soul whiz gets reflective but stays bombastic on the brilliant follow up to the much-loved ‘for all we know’.
It’s another fresh take on soul/funk and R&B, sub-bass pulses providing emotive underpinning to the east-londoner’s astounding vocals. The album is about the process of embracing adulthood and contemplating the naivety of youth, celebratory and reflective by turn. Collabs include hook ups with SiR, Kwabs and Mura Masa. One of pop’s bold new faces is here to stay. “a fierce yet sad summer banger…searing and vulnerable” - pitchfork
