French music

New music 12/2016 – Christine and the Queens, PJ Harvey, Bat For Lashes, Cat’s Eyes

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.
