Gaelle is no stranger to readers of Billboard. Since the late '90s, she has been featured in various sections of the magazine. Now, after honing her craft—collaborating with dance/electronic producer Chris Brann on Ananda Project's "Cascades of Colour" and Wamdue Project's "King of My Castle"—Gaelle delivers her debut album. The richly textured collection showcases an artist who experiments with a variety of sophisticated beats and rhythms: "Falling" is straight-up house, "Fade Away" is slinky R&B and the title track has one foot squarely in Coldplay's studio. Throughout, Gaelle's penchant for all things soul remains intact. An adventurous spirit, Gaelle's musical twists and turns will be appreciated by fans of Sade, Beth Orton and Björk; that is, if they are exposed to them.—MP
