Robyn - Missing U
Published: 4:47 pm, August 02, 2018Words: Martyn Young.

It’s been almost eight years since Robyn delivered her outstanding trio of ‘Body Talk’ albums including the all-time weepy dancefloor classic ‘Dancing On My Own’. Sure, she never really went away and collaborated with Royksopp on a Really Rather Good album including a high-up-the-bill Latitude spot, but this time it’s the real thing. Robyn has finally returned in her own right, and it’s like she’s never been away.

‘Missing U’ sees her working with Metronomy’s Joe Mount and longtime collaborator Klas Ahlund, and it's everything you could have wanted from a Robyn comeback. The voice, the sounds, the heartbreaking emotion, it’s all there, and the feelings are as strong as ever. The sentiment is pure and simple; a message to her fans who have remained loyal for so many years since she broke through way back in 1995, it’s a glistening piece of graceful electro-pop.

The bpm is slightly higher than on her lauded classics, but it’s tempered with a kind of resigned heartache, and that reticence is mirrored in the music’s reluctance to give everything away. There is no climax and no drop. The track builds and builds but just flutters off into the ether. There’s clearly more to come. That’s alright though; Robyn is back, and all is right in the world.
