⚔️ 𝕽𝖆𝖞 ⚔️ Ethereal art pop straight from the 80s. Nostalgic vibes run all throughout this multilingual album that just happened to age so damn well. This should definitely be more known, so spread the word (and the music!) Favorite track: Sirene.

about

Europe (and more specifically France) as seen by a young Japanese girl in the mid-Eighties... 
A study in inverted exoticism... Sonoko charmingly conjures up the spirit of Brigitte Bardot, Suicide, French cinema, Nino Rota, Robbe-Grillet, David Lynch, Catholic church music, Phil Spector, Shakespeare and more. Jean-Paul Gaultier has repeatedly been using songs from this cult album for his fashion shows. The album was produced by Colin Newman (Wire) and Aksak Maboul (Vincent Kenis & Marc Hollander).
