Liela Moss is one cool artist. Projecting confidence, there’s nothing sweet about her earthy, sensual voice or sassy writing. She has collaborated with UNKLE in the past, and this album gracefully holds that soundtrack-esque electronic undercurrent.

There is a smattering of sound from the 80s that is especially apparent in the likes of splendid opener Turn Your Back Around and Stolen Careful. However, they are not retro in the slightest. The Individual is fiercely powerful with its spooky wailing backing, and at the assured end of pop are single Atoms At Me and White Feather. Moss is as brilliant as any of the female heavyweights around today and should get the recognition she deserves.
