Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Miou Miou is a Czech band tackling a tradition of pop by singing in French. Their airy and pleasant debut has now gotten a more international release, which is cool.

The singer Karolina Dyrtrova has a pleasant lilt to her voice an also plays a lot of instruments.

Le petit punk playfully celebrates punk but sounds like a pop song.

Dans le miroir de tes yeux reminds me of how the Cardigans used to sound. The melody is gorgeous.

Deja-vu is wonderful, the singer trilling bird-like as the band breezily back her.

Avant le voyage bears a slight resemblance to the lighter side of Stereolab, even if the singer is less chilly than Laettia Sadier.

It’s another winning pop moment by this likable and inventive band.
