Jessie Ware - What's Your Pleasure?
Published: 10:19 pm, September 18, 2020Words: Martyn Young.

On her fourth album, Jessie Ware sets her sights firmly on the dancefloor with the banger central 'What's Your Pleasure.'

There are no half measures here; every track is vital and powered by pulsating disco beats that allow Jessie's glorious voice free reign to float effortlessly around the bouncing rhythms. It's a sound insistent on getting you on your feet and moving, from the elastic bass bounce of 'Ooh La La' to the high energy, string flecked ecstasy of 'Save A Kiss'.

A lot of the best dance music has always had a heartfelt emotional core, and you can hear that at the very core of, 'What's Your Pleasure' which mirrors the whirl of intense feelings that this very physical and stirring music conjures. Jessie adapts to it with ease like on the whispered vocals of 'In Your Eyes' it's the sound of a master at work taking you on a dancefloor journey.

This is undoubtedly the most electronic focused album of Jessie Ware's career referencing back to her earliest music while setting a path for the future that recognises the emotional core of her music and a desire to cut loose and have some fun.
