Ethiopian-Canadian Ruth B’s sophomore long-player is full of lush summery vibes, like the chilled-out aptly titled Holiday, that will be lapped up by anybody lucky enough to get away to more exotic climes this summer. And for those who don’t, there is the title track which is one of the more sincere and – more importantly – timeless lockdown inspired tracks you’ll hear this year.

Mostly wrapped in the soft sheets of RnB pop, as on the lyrically strong Princess Peach, Ruth offers up more folksy summer of love vibes on Favourite, whilst Spaceship is just pure and simple pop without any cynical agenda. Whilst rarely deviating from a mid to laid back tempo, this is an assured and accomplished delight.
