Artist Name: Mabel
Song Title: Loneliest Time of Year
Mabel drops another smashing hit entitled ‘Loneliest Time of Year.’
The song is memorable, and the songwriting is exceptional.
The music video is well-produced, and the colour grading is remarkable.
She sings from the heart.
The harmony between the vocals and instrumentation is intact.
An effortless storyteller with a pure and unfiltered singing talent and songwriting ability, Mabel McVey has an instinctive gift of melody far beyond her twenty-three years.
Indeed, Mabel has made quite the impression since bursting on to the scene in September 2015 with her release ‘Know Me Better.’ Quietly released onto Mabel’s personal SoundCloud, the single didn’t remain a secret for long, putting the wheels in motion for Mabel to become a fresh and exciting name amongst a brand-new generation of r ‘n’ b chanteuses.
In the three since, Mabel’s growth (musically, emotionally, visually) has been extraordinary.
Her formative material led to the surprise breakthrough of ‘Finders Keepers’ in 2017, which went platinum, spent 5 weeks in the top 10, and saw Mabel nominated for her first BRIT Award (Critics’ Choice).
She has gone from playing nervous, intimate shows to touring with Harry Styles, selling out her own dates around the world (including London’s Brixton Academy) and has clocked up increasingly-surreal experiences en route (which includes playing Wembley Stadium in a Burberry catsuit and rainbow flag). Over two million single sales in the UK and over half a billion streams followed.
Mabel has emerged as one of the UK’s most positive, candid lyrical voices, with songs that frequently explore everything from identity, the challenges of modern relationships, and working out who you are and what you want.
