ILX favorite, quietly grinding
Last year's "U-Huh" and "Switch Lanes" were upper echelon and "Brontosaurus" was big fun
still room to grow for me here but the newest track is not bad on contact

Maybe in 100 years someone will say damn Dawn was dope. (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 9 April 2015 14:15 (nine years ago) link

I hadn't heard "Imprint" before, but that's nice. Below is her latest as a solo instead of a featured:

I love her. Saw her live late last year, she was a delight. Supporting Charli XCX on her Australian tour which is in a few weeks - I'll report back.

Everyone should hear her SWITCHTAPE mix which is incred:

Her debut album is finally coming out in October. The lead single is with Killer Mike:

She's also on the new Martin Solveig single which is pretty much Intoxicated pt. 2.

New single is really clunky and a terrible look for her.

This was a proper banger though and was unjustly overlooked here.

The album is absolutely delightful. "Simulation", "Follow Me", "Afterglow" and "At Least I Know" are all knockouts.

#20 in the album chart this week, just ahead of Tove Lo!

"Simulation" looks set to be my song of the (antipodean) summer.

Her new EP is cute and has her trying on a few different hats: SZA for "White Rose", Coloring Book-era Chance for "Say It".

also this came out earlier in the year and is one of her most impressive songs

I wasn't in the mood for Vol. 3, maybe she's trying a little hard, but Cashmere is nice and slick

Short of being wall-to-wall brilliant, her first album Sweet Justice (from 3 Nov) is keeping me engaged and entertained throughout. Her style and mix of genres is actually quite streamlined by now and surprisingly smooth, the 14 tracks are very consistent. She probably has to move past certain combinations and her vocals are maybe a limiting factor by now, I still see potential, but this is good.
