Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Flutter is colorful, catchy and fun synth pop music. Vocalist Christine Ingaldson has a dynamic voice and real star quality.

“Come with Me” is brash and up-tempo and has an early eighties sounding vibe.

“Soft Lullaby” gives Ingaldson a chance to use her vocal range and she knows how to use it.

“Sleepwalking” is a would-be hit with an irrepressible chorus and a sassy vocal.

“4th Day” starts with a great spoken word bit in the vein of Laurie Anderson but is ends up being more pop than that would imply, as Ingaldson dissects a failed relationship.

“Be Together” is like Pet Shop Boys fronted by Gwen Stefani on a good day.

This is a lively and sparkly pop record.
