Made During Summer 2020, Loraine James' Second Hyperdub Album, `Reflection', Is A Turbulent Expression Of Inner-Space, Laid Out In Unflinching Honesty, Offering Gentle Empathy And Bitter-Sweet Hope. `Reflection' Further Develops A Unique Pop Sensibility Realised On Last Year's `Nothing Ep', While Tones Of Drill And R&B Seep Through Into This Collection Too. In Contrast To The Brash Splashes Of 2019's `For You And I' Lp And The Grimey Anger Of `Nothing', `Reflection' Is Pared-Down And Confident, Taking The Listener Through How Last Year Felt As A Young Black Queer Woman In A World That Has Suddenly Stopped Moving, The Arc Of The Album Peppered With Loraine's Diaristic Confessions. Starting Positively With The Gentle Pop-Trap Of `Built To Last' Ft Xzavier Stone, Into The Bumpy Instrumental Of `Let's Go', The Album Switches Tone With `Simple Stuff', Followed By Regular Collaborator Le3 Black Amplifying Loraine's Vulnerability On The Downcast Drill Of `Black Ting', Then `Insecure Behaviour And Fuckery' Is A Techno Glide Which Pairs Nova's Confrontational Plea For Respect, Delivered In Monotone Autotune, Against Deep Drexciyan Chords. With Baths On Vocals, The Weightlessness Of `On The Lake Outside' Soothes Numb Feelings, And Eden Samara Explores The Shadow World Of Anxious Dreams On The Airy R&B Of `Running Like That'. Closing Track `We're Building Something New' With Manchester Rapper Iceboy Violet Brings The Album Together, Confidently Suggesting A New World Is In Reach. `Reflection' Is A Brave Step Forward For A Unique And Creative 21st Century Musician.
