Not Your Muse
She topped every tipster's poll as once to watch for 2020. We all know what happened next – but the London star has proved herself a generational talent.
Whether up-tempo or morose, Celeste’s remarkable voice is the real show-stealer on ‘Not Your Muse’. It has supernatural qualities, turning already poetic lyrics into gut-punch moments. Take breakthrough single ‘Strange’, a reflection on broken relationships (“Isn’t it strange? / How people can change / From strangers to friends / Friends into lovers / And strangers again”) transformed by Celeste’s smoky vocals into an emotional sledgehammer.
The same could be said of the laidback ‘Some Goodbyes Come with Hellos’, whose relaxed acoustic instrumentation allows the full focus to be pulled onto Celeste’s narrative, delivered with dazzling aplomb.
