With Chorusgirl now a solo project for Silvi Wersing after two albums as a band, Colapso Calypso, the follow-up to 2018’s Shimmer And Spin, is still unmistakeably Chorusgirl. Going solo has simply clarified how big a part Wersing’s voice and guitar played in the project’s identity in the first place.

Her singing in particular feels like an integral instrument here, with its beautiful fluttering calling to mind Liz Fraser on the likes of In The Business Of Dreams. The chilly, expansive dream pop of the record reaches its pinnacle on Sleepless In South London, where Wersing reminds us of just what a master she is at creating an atmosphere. A welcome return for an artist who’s been away too long.
