Erika De Casier - Still (Standard CD CD)

Erika de Casier isn’t searching for perfection - she’s just trying to show you where she’s at right now. As ever, ‘Still’ proves that de Casier is a master of writing songs that speak to universal experiences of modern life, even for all their specificities and quirks. Her new album, ‘Still’, sees de Casier writing about genuine heartbreak with a new clarity. For all the new heaviness that arises on ‘Still’, de Casier’s music remains as fun and sensual as it’s always been and confirms that there are few artists making music that so freely slips between sensitivity and irreverence, sex and sadness.

All of this is to say the album is classic de Casier, her idiosyncratic mix of luxuriant electronica and moonlit R&B drilled further into that one-of-a-kind sound here. Her songwriting is as masterful and universal as ever, and her proficiency as a producer heightened as she produces other voices (They Hate Change, Shygirl, Blood Orange) for the first time.

She also invites new collaborators, working with live musicians in addition to samples. N, co-producer of ‘Essentials’ and ‘Sensational’, returns here, but added to the fold are Jonathan Jull Ludvigsen, Carl Emil Johansen, Niels Kirk, Christian Rhode Lindinger, Nick León, Kirsten Nyhus Janssen and Tobias Sachse, adding live drums, synths, guitar, bass and more.

‘Still’ feels like a conversation between friends in the backroom of a crowded bar. Those friends embolden de Casier to deliver some of her most emphatic songs ever, put on display brilliantly on ‘Lucky’, her first offering from the album out today.
