    Christine & The Queens

    I honestly don’t think Christine would want to work with M. I feel like she’s charging through in her own work and it would get in the way of that.

    I'm living for the production throughout. I wonder how long her set will be on tour cause I think now she's got plenty to work on if she's going to incorporate songs from her first record and mostly new songs.

    Christine & The Queens

    I’m thrilled that people are loving it as much! Funnily enough, the hardest thing to get through when you first listen to her is her seemingly horrific nonsensical French to english “poetic” translations. However, the more I’ve listened to her first ep, debut record, read through translations of her French versions to see the compatible lyrics, now with this new record...I finally get her little meanings behind lyrics like “I am out for a walk and I won’t be back till their staining my skin...” Just as a small example. Her lyrical translations clearly stem from literary poetics but also from her perspective in French and trying to convey in English and how those things (the words we use and how we use them from language to language) can clash and not make sense. With this album, I think she’s pushing that even further from the first record and being even bolder. She’s settled into a new “skin” and she’s tempting the listener, provoking us even, whereas her first record she was making a pure statement on her understanding of herself and her position in life as a queer person. Now, she’s actively searching for sensuality and invoking her inner sexual urges without shame (according to her, because she got some fame and attention, dated and found herself getting more comfortable in her skin) So, basically what I'm saying it's been a journey, a little exploration into her kookiness and her introspective slow-burn styled videos, her funky dance performance styles and her beautiful smooth melodies/vocals/productions and now that I feel more in tune with her and her message, it's so gratifying. What my friends would say after they randomly caught her at Governers Ball (specifically cause she was on early and told them they HAD to see her) was how funny she was and how sad and serious she seemed in most of her videos. I think that was a little peak into her goofy personality and breaking that strange wall of this french girl who we don't understand... my most memorable moment seeing her live was when she mentioned ru paul was her biggest inspiration and made everyone chant "if you cant love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else can i get an amen?" and everyone did it.

    It’s amazing! Damn (what must a woman do!) is very reminiscent of Madonna, what’s her face reminds me of in this life...most of it has a very early 90’s Prince/Michael...even Sheila E type beats and production style. Its a great album!!! Can’t wait to listen on repeat for the next year!!!!

    Being at the Q&A and hearing them explain their vision made it much more enjoyable. The no-narrative was purposely done. I love the film!

    80s New Wave

    The singer of Depeche Mode is at my job with his wife...and I’m tempted to ask him about whether that collaboration with M was ever true.

    I’ve seen her every time she’s come to nyc. She would write to me on Twitter when she was finalizing her ep and I was begging her for lyrics to her English songs. Wierd thing I find annoying is that all her videos are not playable in the US... like narcosist is back, night 52 etc...she has a few more videos and then I also love her demos.

    I preferred girlfriend at first and wasn’t sure about doesn’t matter...the beats are so sexy and exciting...similar and then they change, her voice ... I was quite literally on my commute to gay pride crying on the train, playing doesn’t matter on a loop. Every time I get to “run if you stole a charge of sunlight...eyeah eyeah” I feel this emotional release. And the “forget I said it, I soliloquies, a stinging nettle, their hands on their thighs” and then the explosion of beats ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I just love her so much. So glad I’ve stood by her work since the beginning and I’m certainly not stopping now! It’s only gotten better

    Yes. I’ve stayed by her side since her first ep and have had trouble with her English translations and I’m so glad I entertained it. After listening to that podcast, I feel like I understand her so much more. I wish she would do that with a few more songs. I do think doesn’t matter is one of the best songs I’ve heard in a long long time. It feels so good and yet when the song breaks near the end, there’s this feeling of pain and sadness and letting it go. Idk I just love the song so much.

    I’ve listened to this 3 times. I’ve cried each time by the end of it. This is turning out to be one of the most refreshing, most provocative new pop artist in recent memory. What a young genius so full of interesting angles to her music it doesn’t matter makes me want to run from everything while crying.
