Cate Le Bon – Typical Love

Cate Le Bon’s Pompeii is one of the finest albums of 2022 so far, and Typical Love is the first new material the Welsh artist has put out since its release. Following in a similarly idiosyncratic vein as her previous work, it’s another low-key, art-pop gem, and is the product of “a rare jam session with dearest genius friend, Stella Mozgawa”. Sparse and restrained with haunting brass, it’s reminiscent of Talking Heads in some of their odder moments.
