Gabrielle Aplin has seen the world, and she’s heard the world. Eighteen months’ international touring, 63.5 million Spotify streams, 80 million YouTube views, 1.5 million sales of singles from her debut album ‘English Rain’, a UK Number One, two Australian Number Ones, proper fan mania in Japan, a gold-selling album in the UK, a BBC Introducing YouTube channel whose views trumps those of Ed Sheeran, George Ezra and Royal Blood, a signing by Storm model agency – all of that has fed, bled and rushed into her second album. The result is a bigger, bolder, fresher and brilliantly louder singer-songwriter. ‘LIGHT UP THE DARK’ is a collection of songs, written and recorded in a producer-friend’s house in a corner of Stoke Newington, North East London. Both intimate and expansive, they bristle with energy, crackle with atmosphere and swagger with a Feist-meets-Cat Power brainy cool. These are songs with attitude and ideas, written from the head and the heart, bound for the soul.
