VALGEIR SIGURDSSON PRODUCES NEW ALBUM FOR CAMILLE

CamilleThe big review: Camille

From
Camille reminds me of Björk. Not in the way that Bat For Lashes’ Natasha Khan reminds me of Björk, by sounding exactly like her. But because she’s bold, experimental and can transform her extraordinary voice from goose-bump-inducing choral music to a sassy soul moan and a broken whimper – sometimes, all in the space of one song.

She beatboxes, grunts, squeaks, chatters sexily in French and uses the art of “body percussion” – stamping, thumping and clapping to create infectious beats. She samples noises such as water slopping, tea being poured and struck matches to create textured, atmospheric sounds best heard through big headphones. She even has people humming in place of basslines. In short, she rocks.

Read more about this in our news session.
