Song Notes:

1. The Outsider: An electro-orchestral odyssey, 'The Outsider' tells the universal story of the heretic's journey and seemingly inevitable fate. But hope remains, nonetheless...
2. New One: Pure electro-pop, 'New One' considers the burdens placed on the young by a 'vampire culture' of elders.
3. Music for a Film - Theme 5: This string piece is part of a larger suite of improvised instrumentals intended for an imaginary film that uses a pre-written soundtrack as inspiration.
4. Rialto: A lament for the myriad costs of the nuclear industry. Dedicated to Jean McSorley, an anti-nuclear campaigner, environmental activist and author whose father worked at the Windscale nuclear reactor in Cumbria, the site of UK's most serious nuclear accident in 1957.
5. X: A filmic instrumental featuring kicking rhythms, piano and strings.
6. More than my Blood: "I have crossed oceans of time to find you..." Retro synth-pop with a twist of gothic.
7. Blame: An electro-pop gem, 'Blame' explores the implications of crypto-fascism and surveillance-gone-rampant for contemporary Western democracies.
8. Music for a Film - Theme 9: This string and piano piece is part of a larger, improvised body of work that seeks to inspire the creation of a film rather than follow its lead.
9. Crumbs: A man, depleted and despondent, considers his options...
10. Two Dimensions: With its simple pairing of piano and voice, 'Two Dimensions' conveys the shame and guilt of being far from the frontlines of human suffering.
11. Lullaby: An electro-orchestral lullaby with dark undertones.
12. A piano improvisation that traces a spectrum of emotions from naïve optimism, to sadness, triumph and bittersweet resignation.

The Outseider - Review
Sondrine – The Outsider – Independent release.

I recently have had the pleasure of listening to Sondrine’s newest – her debut album called “The Outsider”. For those of you who like their electro mixed with haunting, almost classical piano pieces, then this baby is for you.
The album kicks off with the title track, and this sets the tone for what is to come – wonderfully produced instrumentation, coupled with Sondrine’s pristine vocal qualities, that seem to me to be a mix of Goldfrapp, Kate Bush, Madonna (very small elements), and also some of Within Temptation’s Sharon Del Adel. There are 12 tracks in all, and a bonus track is emailed to those who buy the album – a stunningly beautiful piano piece called Moss Eater.
Of the vocal tracks , my current favourites are The Outsider, Rialto, More Than My Blood, Blame (my top one so far), and Two Dimensions. Every song has its own atmosphere which is allowed to develop and evolve, and there are definitely NO duds on this album. The instrumental tracks are just as atmospheric, with standouts being the two “Music for a Film” pieces, X, and the closing track – a stunning 6 minute epic called Handdara, which I am informed was recorded with no retakes…press record and away Sondrine went!!
The early part of the album is more up-tempo with most of the vocal tracks, gradually seguing into a gorgeous ambient, laid back second half. Mention must be made of Albert Martinez’ mastering talents – he has brought this album to life here. On the whole this album is a wonderful debut for Sondrine, with many more, I hope to come, in the future.
