Coinciding with this news, the now New York-based songwriter, has shared the album’s lead single ‘Hands All Over Me’. While we remain blissfully unaware to how the whole album will sound, this first glimpse suggests a marked change. Her penchant for hazy, softly abrasive and desert-borne dream-pop seems to be taking something of a back seat, sporting instead an ’80s synth-pop sound (there is a serious Gary Numan vibe going on). Alluring and hypnotic, ‘Hands All Over Me’ blends crisp, ’80s-leaning percussion, sensual synth, euphoric instrumentals with the shoegaze wonder of her previous work, as her emotive, powerful vocals piercing through this wall of blissful noise. This is a track to move to, or be moved by, depending on your mood but whatever the case, this is a track to brighten up your day.
