Built on a bassline that could have been lifted from one of The XX’s sharpest tracks, ‘All I Ever Asked Of You’ sees Croydon’s Rachel Chinouriri sculpting a perfect indie pop song about frustrated love, like an upbeat Daughter or a less deranged MGMT, with a dreamy earworm of a synth-fuelled chorus.
Chinouriri is on an upward trajectory right now, from bedroom-pop virtuoso to Radio 1 artiste, after last year’s EP release Four° In Winter, and seems determined to keep her experimental slant intact as she goes on her merry way. Apparently she’s working on a new EP as we speak.
