Neneh Cherry

5 Feb 2019

In a record that's equal parts angry, thoughtful, melancholic and emboldening, Neneh Cherry's fifth solo album, Broken Politics, asks big questions about a world in flux, patient in the quest, but also acknowledging that sometimes the answers don't exist.

A continuation of Neneh's collaboration with Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden, with whom she worked on her 2014 release Blank Project, Broken Politics is more reflective and subdued.

However, in live performance Cherry’s untameable energy and genuine investment in the sentiment of her music makes every song crackle with energy. In the words of The Guardian, Cherry’s music is 'simultaneously beautiful and abrasive, cheerful and deeply sad, much like its maker'.
