Second album by Utrecht-based, Dutch retro-duo Donna Blue. In the new songs (in French and English) you still hear ye-ye and sweet 60s pop (Nancy & Lee), but in this interview (in Dutch) they say jazz, more specific bossa jazz (Laurindo Almeida, who made a FANTASTIC album with Stan Getz in 1966, one of my all time favorite records) is an influence. Not that much in the two French songs, of which the dreamy ‘Mains de l’amour’ a real gem.

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.
