Sometime student and sometime pop-person Maude Latour returned recently with Block Your Number - a track that sounds a lot like Lorde having had one too many sugary drinks, a tiny bit of Taylor Swift and (in places) a tiny bit like The Strokes. Which is odd, but weirdly brilliant. It’s also the sound of Maude’s head with the floodgates down – there’s not just one idea or thought here but a whole flood of them. “There is so much packed into this song, it’s all straight from my life, my heart, my existence. I have nothing other than this,” she says. Let’s hope she has some more because if not that’s her pop career over, and as for her university education? Well that hasn’t really worked for her if everything she knows can be condensed into a four minute pop song.
