Excellent follow-up from the gender-bending French singer; my two favourite musical redheads release solo albums after a five-year break.
Spanish flamenco meets R&B; cinematic French pop; sunlit American country.
More like, music I got ages ago but didn’t get to write about, but better late than never.
Christine and the Queens – Christine and the Queens
Why does everything sound so much more charming when it’s sung in French, or with a French accent? Christine and the Queens is the androgynous alter ego of the French singer Héloïse Letissier, who alternates between English and French on this album but is at her most appealing when she sings in her mother tongue. Catchy, top-notch electronic pop with some provocative lyrics.
