Jess Mills - Gabriel
She's one of the brightest new pop talents making waves in 2012, and with the release of her delightfully fizzy single Pixelated People on the horizon (think Katy B crossed with Sunday Girl) things are looking promising indeed for Jess Mills.
Pushing further down the path of enchanting ethereal synth-pop, Jess turns her hands to covering Roy Davis Jr's Gabriel here - the results are a smoothly ambient stream of Balearic bliss. It's slick contemporary pop, the kind of stuff to unite radio airwaves and neon-painted club dancefloor in union - plus, those jazzy horn riffs that pop up halfway through are just divine.
Gabriel features on the Pixelated People digital bundle, available to download from the 29th January.
