striking a balance between the whispered, sultry sophistication of her parents and gleaming electro-pop – with occasional lush string augmentations - her 4th outing is a gorgeous, vividly cinematic blend of intoxicating atmosphere and immediate melodic hooks.

  to top it off, these avant-chansons are kissed by bruised, introspective, occasionally disquieting lyrics. The album opens with the nursery rhyme enchantment of ‘Ring a Ring a Roses’, a hazy mosaic of nostalgic childhood snapshots – the verses delivered in intimately captured French, the instantly infectious chorus in coolly clipped English – and ends with the electro-disco-flavoured ‘Les Oxalis’ (named after the eponymous woodland flower). we recommend for fans of soko, Christine and the queens, Camille and, of course, serge gainsbourg and jane Birkin. “sumptuous, melancholy electronica” 8/10 – uncut.
