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.
