A pleasant surprise - perfect for sunny summer days!,
This review is from: Drystar (Audio CD)
This is a very chilled and emotional trip-hop album from a new Brussels-based group, signed to a UK label. The singer Esra Tasasiz is half-Scottish and half-Turkish - apparently. Lots of synths (some obvious Depeche Mode influences on the title track) mixed with string sounds plus some beats and scratches. The lyrics may be rather simple - but the music is something special. Drystar is perfect for summer sunny days, and will appeal to fans of Dido, Morcheeba, Hooverphonic, Olive and Portishead.
