Claude Violante is the female half of Haussman, a French dance pop duo that sticks to using analog. Her self-titled EP takes you back to the late Seventies/early Eighties when Laurie Anderson and Gary Numan came to the fore as the next wave of electronic music pioneers. It's a clash between trashy Euro disco and avant-garde drones, beeps and clicks. She has sleepy voice that adds a soft touch to the sparse electronics. Think Lisa Gerrard fronting Tubeway Army or early Depeche Mode.
Claude Violante is released on Tsunami-Addiction. Also available on blue vinyl.Tracks:
