Album Name: Histories d’Eau
Year/Label: 2004 / Independent
Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
This is lovely trip hop stuff with delightful singing in French. “Sans se Retourner” is sweet and poppy like a French answer to Dido.
“Gibraltar” is a suitably warm moment, san.drine’s vocal skidding across hopping beats. The use of an accordion adds a unique twist.
“Raméne-moi” is a stunning song that sounds instantly anthemic. San-drine’s secutive vocal set to a soft background.
The Balearic beat of “Atlantiques” provides a nice contrast with the relaxed vocals.
“Allers Vers Demain” is chillingly sweet, the vocal supported by a groovy beat.
As debut go this is perfect.
