Ronika – “World Is Turning” (Stereogum Premiere)

If Ronika seems like a modern spin on early Madonna, well, she’s drawing her DayGlo pop from many of the same inspirations. The Nottingham singer/songwriter/producer presents an evolved conglomeration of disco, early hip-hop, synth-pop, and ’80s R&B, but the results are distinctly 2014. A new release not included on debut album Selectadisc, single “World Is Turning” gleams and skitters with retro-futuristic verve while Ronika sings about burning with you “in the 4 a.m. sun.” There are so many buoyant sounds bouncing around this track; let them sparkle for you below.

Selectadisc is out now on Record Shop. Ronika plays Ace Hotel in London on 11/26; get tickets here.
