Sound: An undeniable dance party
If you like: Caroline Polachek, MUNA, Betty Who
Why you should listen: Time and again, Jepsen has proved that she’s a bonafide pop star, refining her song-writing on every album. On The Loneliest Time, she takes a step back to explore neighbouring genres (Go Find Yourself or Whatever, Western Wind, Shooting Star) while simultaneously creating strong pop tunes (Talking to Yourself, Beach House, Surrender My Heart).
Best track: Talking to Yourself
