This lateral progression in their artistry represents a new identity and a more lo-fi sonic approach It's been a long time since Chris, one of 2018's best pop records and Christine And The Queens' mainstream breakthrough, and while the gap has been filled with an EP and covers here and there Redcar les adorables etoiles (prologue) represents a new identity and a more lo-fi sonic approach. One doesn't have to speak French (luckily) to deduce that the album is repetitious, as the taut compositions with Jam & Lewis as their inspiration have been replaced with more improvisation and casual earworms. Combien de temps is perhaps the most extreme example, as a skronky organ-based groove loops for eight and a half minutes with little in the way of development, but more immediate and poppy material comes with rein dire where syncopated percussion and acidic synths accompany a thoughtful tune about being spiritually linked to another ("sans jamais rien dire / je pense tous les jours a toi, sans rien dire").
