EDITORS’ NOTES

Swedish-Gambian singer Seinabo Sey sparkles on this stylish nu-pop collection of soul and chameleonic electronic tunes. The sonic world of Pretend is richly multi-hued—mournful organs build to joyful EDM on slow-rising opener “Younger,” strings pulse under trickling congas on “Words,” and “Who” smuggles disco guitar into a foot-stomping R&B jam. It’s all a gorgeous backdrop to Sey’s soulful vocals, which offer tales of loss, family, relationships, and redemption with a conviction that belies her youth. Sophisticated pop at its most powerful.
