CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS
La vita nuova
On her surprise-released ep, her quest for a new life draws strength from extreme vulnerability, and makes for an engrossing electro-pop novella in the process.
'La vita nuova' follows 18 months of live shows, collaborations and international distinctions, around the release of Christine and the Queens’ breathtaking second album, 'chris'. “The singer and producer’s dazzling new EP is a subtle gesture about grace and interiority and the illusion of effortlessness, the same attributes that mark Chris as a true star” 7.8 – pitchfork. If you love perfume genius, robyn and/or kindness, get this in yer ears! “surprise EP is an astonishing and emotional sucker-punch Héloïse Letissier has once again injected enormous emotional heft into the vessel of warped, left-field pop. And this one takes on classic literature!” 5/5 – nme.
Juliet says: “Has Christine & The Queens always been this sexy? I mean yes. Also maybe psychic. Non stop Covid anthems - we're sad & we're separated by mountains - COINCIDENCE??”
