Yes, Hanin Elias on Filles Sourires. She wrote her first French song, which I liked, and I asked her if I could put the demo (for the song is not finished yet) on my blog. It’s that simple. I remember Hanin Elias from a storming show with Atari Teenage Riot on a Dutch festival – she was a member of Alec Empire’s revolutionary punkgabba-outfit for several years. Never heard of ATR or the Digital Hardcore family? Crank up your volume and see this, or this. That’s something else, right? Hanin still makes noise, but lives on Tahiti now so singing in French (and singing more fragile) isn’t that odd – but where are the ukelele’s, Hanin? She might turn into a slightly more agressive counterpart of Mareva Galanter, who knows? Listen to more Hanin here. See her on Facebook and Myspace. Labels can contact her manager via chromo-music(a)wanadoo.fr.
