Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Olga Kouklaki became known when she sang with French rockers Poni Hoax. Her own solo debut is electro pop with a slight resemblance to acts like Ladytron and Client.

The title song shimmers with an instantly catchy groove and a nice lead vocal.

Be4 the Night Ends is a sinister, New Order-ish crawl of a song with a siren-like vocal.

Call Me Liar is comparatively dark and Kouklaki just mutters a few words as the music drones on.

Ballade is softer and sees her singing with real soul her debut is a fascinating and unusual record.
