“Take it off. Tell me everything. Now there’s nothing in between us.”
Meet Mabel. The daughter of legendary pop artist, Neneh Cherry and producer, Cameron McVey, has come out of her shell to give us a taste of what she has up her sleeve. With a smoky voice that mimics a young Kelly Rowland or Brandy, it’s no surprise that the Londoner has what it takes to wow her new fans, as she comes from a talented family.
Mabel’s debut single “Know Me Better” is an infectious and gorgeous little number, but that’s not all. The track title is perfect for her debut, as she is a fresh face to the music industry. In a way, the song serves as a metaphor of Mabel’s cry to us, yearning for us to get to know her better. The song is about letting your guard down and being vulnerable—which is exactly what Mabel is doing. There’s no doubt that sexiness exudes from the track, but once you really listen to the lyrics, you can feel her expressing a wanted intimacy. Elements of pop and trip hop serve as the base of the song, making it ideal for a romantic night in. Adopting the soulful styles from legends like her mother, Neneh Cherry, and also Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige, those of us at Euphoria are definitely itching to get to know this young artist better.
You can find Mabel’s debut track on SoundCloud and Hype Machine for your listening pleasures.
