Admittedly, I’m late to the game with Lola Dutronic’s music; having only discovered them last year with the release of their chilled out New York Stories EP. I really liked the songs off that record, but felt as though the production could use a caffeine injection– and that’s exactly what they’ve done with Everyone’s A Star.
Of the many eras and genres of music I love, one that always makes me feel all warm n fuzzy is 1960s French pop. While listening to Everyone’s A Star, I feel as though I could just as easily listen to it on a rainy Sunday reading the New York Times sipping a frothy cappuccino as I could sipping martinis and casually dancing at some NYC hotspot.
As a soundtrack to all seasons and many different moods, Everyone’s A Star has one common thread: Chill. Lola Dutronic’s music is extremely relaxing, smooth and makes you feel totally at ease largely due to lead singer, Lola Dee’s soft coos.
Fans of Ivy, Saint Etienne, Keren Ann and 60s French Pop should be all over this.
On an album full of great songs, my favorite is Kiss Me, which you can listen to below.
