Sarah Jaffe’s The Body Wins shows a side to Jaffe that didn’t exist on Suburban Nature – the part of her that liked to dance and listen to hip-hop and cover Robyn songs live.
That’s not to say The Body Wins is a party record. It isn’t. But it has a pulse to it, more than a heartbeat, not quite a breakbeat.
‘Glorified High,’ the first single, perfectly captures that – the energy she’d built up and the energy that had always been there – with a chorus that smacks you in the chest and lingers like a hug.
