I suddenly have very high hopes for the music scene of 2014.
This is so good I can’t really even wrap my head around it. Laura Mvula seems to have an innate understanding of both rejecting and attracting the (male/white/mainstream, what-have-you) gaze. She is featured on the 12 Years a Slave movie soundtrack and made several critics’ fave lists last year with her album Sing To The Moon. Extraordinary stuff.
