Christine and the Queens…….unusual!

I watched very little of Glastonbury this year and really have no interest in Coldplay, despite their overwhelming popularity, and many of the other acts I had never heard of…………perhaps a sign of old age!

However, I did switch on the other night to be greeted by this extraordinary young woman performing a track called Tilted. Combining song and dance this androgynous young woman demanded to be listened to. Her unusual dancing combined with a deep sonorous voice captivated my attention.

It is a very long time since a singer made me sit up and take notice but this one certainly did. Going under the name of Christine and the Queens Héloïse Letissier, is a French singer and songwriter. She was born in Nantes and has been signed to the independent record label Because Music since 2012. Her work combines music, performance, art videos, drawings and photography.

The performance I have posted is from an appearance on the Graham Norton show…………give it a listen!
