We say

Premiered on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6 Music Breakfast show yesterday (17 March), Church Girl is the gorgeous new single from Laura Mvula. It follows the release of her euphoric and ethereal synth-pop led return Safe Passage earlier this month, and again, sees Laura revisit the eighties through a modern prism with some delicious shimmering synths, a glossy beat and a punchy chorus. It’s an absolute gem, which has already picked up praise from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Fader and the NME, following earlier support from Spotify, Apple Music, Independent, gal-dem and many more for her comeback single. With both singles set to feature on her forthcoming new album, Pink Noise, her first in six years, we are certain this is set to be another beautiful album. Last month, she performed her first live performance for three years in her Under A Pink Moon livestream, and more recently, showed off her new material on Later with Jools Holland. Next week, Laura will perform Church Girl on the Graham Norton Show. A welcomed return from the Ivor Novello Award and BRIT winner.
