Reliably informed



Released: 15.07.22







Having already staked a strong claim to stardom with her irrepressibly sassy yet relatable debut, Mabel McVey’s sophomore outing sees her sights squarely on absolute pop domination. For an album recorded during lockdown, About Last Night… effortlessly delivers a euphoric cacophony of lithe bangers engineered for sweaty dance floor antics.

Stylistically, the album all but eschews the breezy, lightweight, R&B-meets-dancehall-tinged pop of its predecessor for more bombastic fare. Sublime disco-dipped stunner Let Love Go packs an undeniably anthemic wallop that’ll have you tripping the light fantastic all summer long; elsewhere, the rhapsodic simplicity of LOL belies its meticulously calibrated pop sensibilities. With records this ineffably assured, it’s a given that pop-queenhood can’t be far off – bow the fuck down, y’all!
