If you've been following the blogs, checking out fashion mags, and generally been keeping your ears to the ground, you'll already be familiar with Mabel McVey. The 20-year-old daughter of pop legend Neneh Cherry and producer extraordinaire Cameron McVey has been branching out into her own lane over the last year or so - slowly putting together a collection of songs which will eventually form her debut album. Prior to this, she made her introduction in the most unusual way - by appearing in a grime music video. She appears ever so briefly as one of the well-styled models in Skepta's video for 'Shutdown', but in that moment, she immediately had tongues wagging; who was this girl?

With such a strong musical background, entering the industry was probably a given for Mabel. Once you hear those delicate, dulcet tones you're immediately aware that music is in her genes. This is Mabel's first headline show since her highly praised slot at The Great Escape back in May, but in the short two months since, Mabel's presence has increased tenfold with the release of her new single 'Thinking Of You'. The breezy, summer-pop anthem echoes elements of '90s Monica meets '90s SWV, and those influences aren't accidental; she's been very vocal about her love for all things '90s flavoured. On top of which, she is a child of the '90s so it makes sense.

Her set tonight at the iconic Notting Hill Arts Club is short, dangerously short, but what it lacked in length it made up for in all-out bangers. As her three-piece band and solo backing singer make their way to the stage, Mabel pops up, out of the darkness and breaks right into song; no introduction, no words, just that stunning voice. Most of the set included previously released material including the stunning 'Know Me Better' and her breakout single 'My Boy My Town'. There was even time to squeeze in a performance of 'Talk About Forever' - the track she released in collaboration with Tate Modern - and a stunning cover of Destiny's Child's 'Say My Name'. New single 'Thinking Of You' closed the mini show in style with gusto, bravado and a little bit of shyness.

Mabel's got all the pieces but they're not all quite in the right place. However, when you take into account the fact that she's only done a handful of live shows to date, the rough edges don't seem so coarse after all. Mabel's got big plans and I'm certain these will come to fruition soon, but it's probably important to let her bloom at her own pace. As time goes on, her on-stage interactions will improve, her confidence will grow and she'll become the performer we're all dreaming of, but these things take time. In the meantime, we can rest comfortably in the knowledge that Mable McVey is here and she's here for the long haul.

'Thinking Of You' is available now on iTunes. Tickets for Mabel's next headline show at London's Moth Club are available now.
