Christine And The Queens presents her first album for Because Music. She warmed up gigs, alone onstage with her computer, before opening a concert for The Do and recently, Stromae. It was her graceful performance at the Victoires de La Musique that got her nominated in the live newcomer category for Les Inrocks, so she went to London and locked herself in the studio with producer Ash Workman (Metronomy), and two multi-instrumentalist brothers (Michael Lovett and Gabriel Stebbing). Christine knew exactly what she wanted; some powerful minimalism; an economy of instruments and tracks; infectious grooves; the organic obviousness of vocals; the quest for contemporary colors and inspired, strong strings. The result is Chaleur Humaine, a portrait of Christine and her queer sisters. This means: far from corsets and boxes. It's a tribute to the unpredictable, to random encounters, to the invention of oneself and the body.
