Yasmin is back. Remember her?

You may remember we said "hello" to Yasmin last December. She has since been on the Radio One playlist and recorded a thing with Jamie xx while wearing a hat.

Yasmin put a preview clip of her new single, Finish Line, on the YouTube last week. It's two-and-a-half minutes long, which suggests either (a) the finished product lasts a quarter of an hour, or (b) she has fatally misunderstood the meaning of the words "preview" and "clip".

Anyway, the song is dressed with dramatic staccato strings and a honking great drum loop, giving it a feel not dissimilar to vintage SWV (Downtown rather than Right Here).

My personal highlight is the bit where she pilfers the "boy band... and another one... and another one... And A-No-Ther One" melody from Busted's Year 3000. Her next single is a cover of You Said No, apparently*.
