The Telegraph
Laura Mvula interview: the supply teacher turned reluctant starIt was Mvula’s love of communal music that led her to work with the Metropole, known for historic collaborations with Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie.

The extraordinary orchestral accompaniment and backing vocals add a nostalgic feel to every song meaning that every song is graceful and calming. Laura has managed to create a true masterpiece whilst the rerecording of her phenomenal debut album is great I can’t help wishing there was some new material on this album. I’m not saying get rid of the old tracks, but mix some new music into it.

Whether her audience will prefer it is debatable…. In smoothing off the edges, though, it loses its mechanical funk, becoming the Laura Mvula album your aunt might own.
