Labrinth: 'Express Yourself' - Single review

Labrinth, Express Yourself
From the gospel-inspired chorus in 'Let The Sun Shine' to the hi-wired grime beats on 'Earthquake', Labrinth is quickly earning himself a reputation as the chameleon of the pop world . Better yet, it appears he still has plenty more ideas tucked up his sleeve, having told us he wants to put out eight singles from his debut LP Electronic Earth. So what of release number four?

The singer has tried his hand at soul, interweaving singing legend Charles Wright's melody with his own contemporary and distinctly personal lyrics. "I don't make the papers, I'm far from JLS/ Ain't got the X Factor, I'm not what they expect," he admits over funk-driven guitars, before the chorus of trumpets and sparkly synths shower down. It's a suit that fits him remarkably well, though given his history, we won't allow ourselves to enjoy it too much.
