Ace break up single from the Mercury nominated La Havas

The best track on Lianne La Havas' Mercury nominated album gets its own release, and rightly so. Putting the 'fun' back into 'fundimentally I want you to fuck off forever' Forget finds Lianne's scornful lyrics and jittery riffs reminiscent of a younger, more guitar-y Kelis. Recent years have seen an endless slew of female singer-songwriters lurking round the lower reaches of the charts like so many urchins clustered round a generous, capricous uncle. La Havas neatly side steps this scrum by the simple tactic of- wait for it-  having a personality. Brit school wannabees and X Factor mugs take note.
