Foxtrott, aka Montreal electronic artist Marie-Helene Delorme, has some interesting musical ideas. She’s exactly the kind of talent that derives from throwing away the rule book and following your creative instincts.

A Taller Us, Delorme’s debut album as Foxtrott, provides an insight into her strangely attractive world of RnB infused-pop with a shimmering electronic edge. Brother is rhythmic genius, even if the opening beat feels lifted straight from tUnE-yArDs’ Gangster.

Every little detail is clear and crisp – best displayed in Shields’ buzzing bass line and plucked synth strings. Across the album, earworms of chart-proof melody are unleashed that have the ability to make your bones shirk into some form of alien dance, whether you like it or not.
