Christine and the Queens - Chris
Published: 9:43 pm, September 18, 2018Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

Christine and the Queen stands out. In a galaxy of pop stars, she’s unique. It’s not just that French flair that marks her as something special. A true artist in all forms, she’s able to capture every eyeball - and never more than here, with new album ‘Chris’.

Creating an ultra-confident persona only adds further fire to the flames. From the velvet slide of opener ‘Comme si’, it’s a construct that levels up on the already brilliant work of debut ‘Chaleur Humaine’.

It’s that first track to arrive from the record ‘Girlfriend’ that really stands out - though. From its opening greeting to the stuttering swearing within, it audibly struts, its gigantic ego carefully walking the tightrope between brilliance and arrogance. With the scene set, others take their chance to shine, from the blue sky vibes of ‘5 dollars’ to the blooping electro-funk of ‘Damn (what must a woman do)’.

Far more than just a concept for a record, it’s a successful artistic experiment that demands attention. All eyes on Chris.

Soccer Mommy: "There are fucked up sides of us that are really hard to live with"

Let’s not get all transatlantic about the spelling on Soccer Mommy’s new album - as she steps up a gear, the follow up to 2018’s ‘Clean’ has its own unique palette.
