Discarding the ambiguity of former moniker Throwing Shade, London alt-pop artist Nabihah Iqbal’s first full-length release deals in thoughtful, expansive soundscapes. This is a more laid-back affair than her earlier work, though it’s just as immersive. With airy, propulsive percussion, languid curls of grungey guitar, 1980s-sheen synths and hazy vocals, tracks such as Saw U Twice and In Visions are disarmingly straightforward lo-fi pop songs, while the glimmering subtlety of Alone Together and dreamy rave euphoria of Untitled Friday are especially invigorating. An album that improves with each listen, with an accomplished, ornate warmth.
