Some artists just fit into the whole 80s revival genre effortlessly. Vintage synths, saxophone solos and gated reverb have never been further away from cheesy than with Lost Girls by Bat For Lashes. Maybe because those tools are at the root of a baroque electro-pop sound that’s been brewing for over a decade. Natasha Khan’s ever-changing approach to music started with Fur and Gold (2007)’s lascivious chamber-folk: the seeds of her 5th album were already planted by then – an astonishing soprano, an overactive imagination, and colorful instrumentation. Comparisons with Kate Bush came one after the other. These days, it might be easier to reference contemporaries such as CHVRCHES or Ladytron, thanks to her recognizable synth groove signature.


However, that first comparison still stands today, despite some stylistic changes. Bush and Khan have the same propensity for ambivalence: the ambiguity of desire, or melancholy and feminine strength, in addition to being a major theme for both singers, is manifested through tasteful vocal nuance that allows each to glide between whispers and sky-high melodies. The voices on Lost Girls are characterized by that same sense of restraint, but the instrumentation doesn’t necessarily follow in the same stride. For example, on the barely camouflaged sexual allegory of The Hunger (supposedly about vampires …), Khan combines the majesty of a reverb-drenched organ with a syncopated funk bass line, communicating a very on-point sense of urgency. As far as albums go, this one is enjoyably retro, bringing the listener far away from 2019 and any socio-political turmoil. Some much-needed escapism for “interesting” times. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Norah Jones in 10 Songs

Even though her albums are released on jazz label Blue Note, Norah Jones’s music has never simply been jazz, just as it has never solely been pop, nor folk, country or soul… Since the early noughties, the American singer and pianist has embraced many styles, often breaking norms in pursuit of her own unique sound, a sound she loves to share through collaborations with different musicians of diverse origin and style. Discover the world of Norah Jones in 10 songs.
