[15] Carly Rae Jepsen, ‘Run Away With Me’


“The intro’s cool.”

“It’s upbeat.”

The NME should revive their singles column, shouldn’t they?

Anyway, here’s the least successful pop sensation of the year, an artist stymied by her record label’s extraordinary, foot-shooting release policy. It’s a moot point whether Carly Rae Jepsen would have done better over here if her album hadn’t already been out across the world six months earlier, but it couldn’t have done any harm. ‘Run Away With Me’ has 1989 confidence and appeal, and all for nothing.
