When Louise Burns sings, stars pour out across the sky, a dance of lustre, light and shadow. Shimmering and soulful one minute, gritty and glamorous the next, Young Mopes is Burns at her boldest and brightest — and also her most defiant and dangerous. She’s revelling in her “f— you” years, exhilarated by the freedom of turning 30, unhinged from expectation and obligation. Burns’ dark pop goth heart, so clearly evident on 2011’s Polaris Prize nominated Mellow Drama and 2013’s Midnight Mass, is just one aspect of Young Mopes’ gleaming kaleidoscope of colours, textures, and influences.
