Corine – Un Air De Fête

After two EP’s, French nu-disco queen Corine just released her first full album Un Air De Fête. A long-player with equal parts groove, sensuality and kitsch, where Giorgio Moroder, Nouvelle Vague and even Jean Michel Jarre are never far away. But the singer with the Jane Fonda looks also explores chanson territory in the few ballads present. All in all, the album couldn’t possibly have sounded more French.

Apart from Cocktail, all Corine’s past singles are there: Pourquoi Pourquoi, Il Fait Chaud, Maquillage and Première Traversée. Pourquoi Pourquoi (with its hilarious video) surely deserves to be re-released, now that Corine is ‘hot’ in every sense. But out of the other tunes, the album’s title track is easily my favourite.
