Foxtrott caught us completely by surprise this year with a string of amazing singles and jaw-droppingly beautiful videos that established the Montreal artist as a must-listen. Thankfully A Taller Us, her debut release, out now on One Little Indian, follows-through on the promise we saw in the project. This feels like pre-Austra Katie Stelmanis, with a little less operatics, sprinkles of experimentation, amazingly big production and bang-on synth-programming.
It’s nice to hear an uncompromising electro album that we feel will stand the test of time, which A Taller Us certainly will. Lead single “Beyond Our Means,” is still a stand-out track, but there are so many gems on this record that picking just one seems fruitless. This is an album through-and-through and needs to be best appreciated by listening to it from beginning to end.
