Brussels-based synth-pop outfit TURQUOISE, led by charismatic frontwoman and sensual vox Sarah Boom, hit the scene last year when they released their sheeny self-titled 4-track debut EP.

An effervescent cocktail of starry-eyed synth-scapes, electrifying vibrations, exquisite melodiousness, and sensual French vocals. A glistening achievement with four seductive sparks. So let’s escape this lockdown reality for a while, track-by-track…

The flourishing opener, that will make your heartbeat jump for joy, has the dancey dynamics of 80s British duo Erasure, a Sisters Of Mercy drumbeat, and resonates
vocally like legendary French singer/actress Jane Birkin. Beatific score.

A reflective and atmospheric Cocteau Twins soundscape colored with blissful synths
and glimmering guitar touches turning this sweet little pearl into an uplifting happening.

Fizzing with a darkish twilight poppiness. Like early Slowdive moodiness fused
with illuminating The Cure guitar sequences and seductive vocals bringing
60s pin-up chanteuse Françoise Hardy to mind. Magnifique!.

A ravishing combination of vocal Vive La Fête sensuality and enthralling New Order
guitar electricity turning this multi-layered humdinger into my favorite piece. Top!
