Sky Ferreira-like (in no other ways than that she’s signed to Polydor and fraternised with Essexian pop pharaoh Blood Orange aka Devonte ‘Dev’ Hynes on past single ‘Unravel’) Laura Welsh has shared a new track with anyone who cares to listen to it (personally, I’d advise doing that), and its name is ‘Cold Front’.

Comparable to Welsh’s most topical rivals (Jessie Ware, especially) via its echo chamber tropicalia and the brittle-rich quality to its beats and synths, this ‘cold’ collaboration with Rhye’s Robin Hannibal also has shades of Sade and, at times, Portishead.

Laura plays London’s Africa Centre on 15 Jul, the same day ‘Cold Front’ is released.
