Lianne La Havas – Forget

Serious Moonlighters

Another great tune from Lianne. She somehow, as she does on “Don’t Wake Me Up,” makes her overdubbed voices sound like trumpets, and the harmony like a fanfare. It’s a striking touch that gives her a unique sound. “Forget” is much more upbeat, and the video is very well-made too. They play with representing her harmonies visually in very cool ways. Also, something about her self-satisfied, slightly sardonic smile (I’m very sorry about all the alliteration just now, we’ll remedy that in the future), and really her whole demeanor in the video, strikes me as the coolest thing I’ve ever seen and has made her a contender for my favorite contemporary female R&B singer, if she wasn’t already.
