Canada’s Jessy Lanza proves that frigid can be deeply captivating. Her downtempo soul recalls the ethereal babydoll synth-pop of Grimes, and James Blake, albeit with chillier R&B beats and steamier vocals. Her 2013 debut for the Hyperdub label,Pull My Hair Back’, saw her collaborating with Jeremy Greenspan of the wonderful Junior Boys. ‘Keep Moving’ picks up the pace into syrupy ’80s funk, but it’s cuts like ‘Kathy Lee’, a weird, saccharine, slo-mo striptease-y earworm, that truly mesmerise. Hear these, plus songs from Lanza’s new album here, along with the in-yer-face Japanese-inspired pop of London trio Kero Kero Bonito, who support.
