Laura Mvula – Got Me

2 July, Laura Mvula will release her third album Pink Noise. But to her, it’s more than just that. The Birmingham artist describes it as ‘the album I always wanted to make’. As the first two singles Safe Passage and Church Girl already made clear, it’ll be heavily influenced by 1980s synth-pop.

That’s only confirmed by the third song to be released ahead of the long-player. Got Me is a great track that wouldn’t have been out of place on a Michael Jackson album. The bass line brings tracks like The Way You Make Me Feel or Leave Me Alone to mind, while the horns and the funky guitar could’ve been sampled from an early ‘80s record by The Jacksons. A colourful song that makes you want to dance.

Slightly over the top, a press release describes Got Me as ‘a funk-fuelled release of inhibitions’, and ‘another taste of the euphoric feel-good sonics Laura explores without fear on her new album’. Can’t wait for 2 July!
