Malaysian singer Yuna has turned up the level of pep on
"Nocturnal." It's not that her 2012, self-titled record was boring. It wasn't. But, if you'll pardon the pun, as an
album "Nocturnal" is much more awake and vibrant
than its predecessor, allowing the singer to showcase a
brighter personality. And while last year's record may
have been a satisfactory establishment of Yuna's abilities as a singer and a performer, "Nocturnal" takes more risks and goes for the gold.
If you are unfamiliar with Yuna, she's an electro-pop
singer in the vein of Kate Havnevik or Imogen Heap, only she's got an understated, sophisticated quality all her own. Her music is full of international flourishes and unusual instrumentation.
From the "American Beauty"/Thomas Newman-esque
clanging that sets off the album's lead track "Falling" to
the African-influenced rhythms and guitar work in the
album's bright standout, "Rescue," it is evident that Yuna is working from a rich, globe-trotting palate. The album was recorded and mixed in various places around the world, although mostly in the U.S. and the U.K.The delicately airy "Lights And Camera" has the makings for a low-key hit.The songwriting on this set is miles ahead of her previous effort. Songs here pop. Low-key verses give way to bigger choruses and it all sticks together in a catchy package."Someone Who Can" is breezy, bright dance number, co-written and produced by the Neptunes' Chad Hugo. And it all begins with the warmest, dreamlike, acoustic guitar riff.
There's little denying that this record is Yuna's
attempt at a crossover stab at true pop. Radio is so
closed, this album probably won't boost her airplay
numbers, but it should."Nocturnal" is a colorful , well-written song-cycle that should win Yuna some new fans. It's an ace collection of pop full of delicate sweetness. Considering Yuna worked with a wide variety of collaborators and producers on this set, it shouldn't hold together as cohesively as it does, but it all adds up to a very beautiful surprise.- abc news
