Includes CD Of The Entire Album
Christine and the Queens, it started with 3 eps : “Miséricorde”, “Mac abbey” and the last one which released on Because Music, “Nuit 17 à 52”. From a high position in the cqFd contest of les inrocks magazine, it warmed up gigs, alone on stage with the computer, before opening concert for The Do and recently Stromae. It’s a graceful performance at the Victoires de La Musique where she was nominated in the live newcomer category. It’s also a girl who dives as soon as possible in her own album. She has written thirty tracks but only eleven will make the final cut. Then she goes back to London and locks herself with the one who’s going to produce the album with her, Ash Workman (Metronomy), and two multi-instrumentalists brothers (Michael Lovett and Gabriel Stebbing). Christine knows exactly what she wants (“Less is More”); some powerful minimalism; an economy of instruments and tracks; infectious grooves, the organic obviousness of vocals, the quest for contemporary colours and inspired strengthening strings.
