If the future is Janelle Monáe, colour me excited!
31 December 2018 | by FilmsFillMyHolesSee all my reviews

Even though the connection betwixt the memories/music videos is a bit ham-fisted, Dirty Computer (the "emotion picture") is wonderful. It's themes feel extremely personal yet universal, the songs are bangin' (the album itself is bloody fantastic) and the whole thing feels so vibrant, colourful and just alive! Janelle's been one of my favourite artists since The ArchAndroid, so I can't wait to see what she does next!
