Right, we’ll admit it: we never got the fuss about Laura Mvula. Sure she’s talented, but the material serviced seemed anything but memorable, very much a dedication of soul but with little recall value. So we’re thankful as fuck that she’s drafted in Nile Rodgers and decided to lighten up a bit, because Overcome is an absolute tune. Those licks are perfect, her fire is on form, and if this is an indication as to where her next album is going, we’re 100% converted and on board. Well done everyone.
