Dreaming On is a special album, for a lot of reasons. First, because of it's unmistakable pop sensitivity, which argues intelligently between the sweet and the bitter. This first IKO CHÉRIE album is dedicated to dreaming and how it can be so cathartic and so illusory at the same time, making you travel to unknown worlds while also keeping your feet far from the ground. Second, because it is easy to see the musical culture and baggage of an artist who has already played with so many styles, and who puts almost all of them into play on an album that, of course, has so much of her French origins (Françoise Hardy, France Gall, LES PARISIENNES are unarguably influences here). But those sounds are updated with effervescent and nebulous ambiance, spacey lounge or Brazilian music, to name just a few. And third, because her vocal register could be compared to Claudine Longet, Hope Sandoval, Blossom Dearie or Kahimi Karie, with whom she definitely has a lot in common.
