Listen whilst you read:

I do like things that are recorded quick and simple without too much fuss. It sounds so live and natural. Especially when you have a great voice like Sandra’s and you can write songs like the jazzy “The Day” or the mournful “night Shields”.

 

Oh how wonderful it is to hear a Francophone artist sing in impeccable English with lyrics that make sense. (“Space Vortex sucking my brain in…”)

 

Simple instrumentation – jazzy drums, stand up bass, processed Spanish guitar. There’s a very Portuguese / Brazilian vibe through “Transat”, “What If I” almost Cardiacs like in the energy and rhythm. Generally it makes me think of Carmel with a Latin/Jazz twist and just a touch of Brussels surrealism.

 

Sandra and Dany (the guitarist) are one of the most infectiously enthusiastic acts going on the Brussels scene. Now with a proper band an great original material. Must get out and see that.
