Contrasting their sound with a mix of Italo-esque upbeat synthpop and breezy downtempo tracks, Antilles seem very able to handle all directions within the electronic pop field. Vocalist Anne Christine handles her output with delicacy, her voice smooth as silk over David Witkowski's dreamy electronics. Ten pop pearls inhabit "Something New", an album far from monotone club beats and over-the-top distortion.
I can spot only one flaw with this fantastic debut. It has not been released as a regular CD and is only available to download. Call me old fashioned (I know I am, by the way), but this is one of those albums where you would want a booklet to flip through while listening, as this is one truly unique, hypnotising synthpop journey.
