Comment: it is an intriguing issue by Sirona-Records firstly because of twofold appearances in sound – because trip-hop beats meet indie rock and Russian language is intertwined with English. And indeed, it is frequently about Soleil (Sun), and obvious escapism from the world of the human race. Mostly it is power pop inflected sound, at times it is immersed in heavy echoes and stomping beats and ominous hip-hop chants. That's all – the words do not have enough power to convey the essential impression of it. It is quite simple and sophisticated at the same time – thereof being mind-provoking). At times it is conveyed by a female vocal, at times by a male vocal, and it is captivating thanks to those sultry labyrinthine meanderings and spaced-out electronic hovers which open up a free entry into a mystical world. It is a freeing experience where it is also represented the touch of famous Trent Reznor (at Illum Tangendo). Get it and listen to the project of the Greece born Stella Katsoudas.
