We previously praised the smooth, R&B-influenced pop of 19-year-old Mabel, and now, her fantastic track “My Boy My Town” has gotten the remix treatment from fellow up-and-comer Shura. The rework gets more atmospheric with some The xx-like guitars made prominent in the mix and more distant-sounding vocals.
Mabel previously said of the song, “Every city has a character and just like people you have to get to know them. ‘My Boy My Town’ is about how a relationship and the complex relationship you have with a city can so easily become interlinked.”
