Experimental feature

This is a classic of its kind: electronic music at its most alluring and sensual. A singer from Hamilton, Ontario, Jessy Lanza conjures small-hours seductiveness and pent-up desire on nine songs written and produced with Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys.

[Her vocal influences run from Sade to SWV.]

The beats, rendered in bejewelled detail as if Aaliyah were fronting The xx, variously embrace minimal R&B, deep house and dreamy future-disco.
