A refreshingly decent debut from a man to believe in.

Label: Virgin EMI
Released: 20th January 2017
Rating: ★★★★

Loyle Carner is a man of many talents. Quite why you’d bother with making music if you were able to cook up a storm is beyond any sensible, hungry person, but nobody is going to hold that against him - such is the quality of his debut album.

Home-grown, mixing spoken word and domesticated rap - there’s none of the grandiose, overblown largesse of Carner’s cross pond peers. That’s ‘Yesterday’s Gone’’s biggest strength. A refreshingly decent debut from a man to believe in. Christopher Jones

To find out more, Dork headed round to frontman Matty Healy’s house to quiz him on what life’s currently like in the most exciting band on the planet.
