This brings all kinds of wonderment to our soul. This is the first official single of singer Lulu James who, if there is any justice in the dance world (which the isn’t), should have a big hit under her sleeve. It’s strong and makes a statement. The sound is an ode to 90s’ vocal house without being too experimental, a la Hercules & Love Affair. Just amazing!
