John Preston

2. Nilüfer Yanya – Miss Universe

Sade, Kelis and Elastica might sound like a disparate bunch but Nilüfer Yanya evokes them all on her immaculate and immersive debut.

Sometimes dead-eyed and disinterested, Yanya is also not afraid to allow a vulnerability to seep into the texture of her songs and this is a record that will hold up over time and reveal yet more and more of itself.

About John Preston

South London based music obsessive with strong opinions about most things. Doubts Madonna has another good record in her but would love more than anything to be proved wrong.
