Laura Mvula - Sing To The Moon

Deserves the attention she’s been getting
Laura Mvula - Sing To The Moon

There’s something about Mvula. Owner of, supposedly, ‘the voice of 2013’, she’s been tipped to lead the soul-surge along with Jessie Ware and Solange. No pressure then. But ‘Sing To The Moon’ ticks the boxes of sounding suitably modern whilst confronting the ghosts of Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald. Packing a brassy punch, the tracks still manage to twinkle elegantly, rich in harmony with hymnal touches. No doubt the singer-songwriter deserves the attention she’s been getting.
