Mai Lan

M83 collaborator Mai Lan has released a smattering of tracks to date, which drift between confident cool pop and wide-eyed barked instructions. Firmly in the latter camp, last year’s ‘Technique’ remains the high watermark of her material to date.

Following on from the release of her excellent ‘Vampire’ EP earlier this year, she’s now back with new single ‘Blaze Up’. Taken from her upcoming new album – the follow-up to her 2012 debut – the track leans more on the cool pop side of her character, but is instilled with plenty of the left-of-centre tweaks that make her such a compelling artist.

The new album, ‘Autopilote’, is due out on 19 Jan. Listen to ‘Blaze Up’ here:
