Music Review: Quadron's debut is groovy and sensual

Quadron, "Avalanche" (Epic Records/Vested in Culture)

June 8th, 2013 by MESFIN FEKADU, AP Music Writer in News

Coco O.'s soft and dreamy tone over the R&B-flavored beat on "Sea Salt" is enough to make you melt (summer heat not required).

""Cause you just play on, you just play with my feelings," she coos. "Blame it all, you still blame it all, inexperienced."

It's an outstanding track and one of the 10 gems on Quadron's electronic soul debut, "Avalanche." The Danish duo - made up of singer Coco O. and producer Robin Hannibal - have crafted a lush, breezy group of songs that hark on love and make for feel-good and easy listening.

The title track is slow and layered, "It's Gonna Get You" has a girl-group vibe and Kendrick Lamar adds volume to the lounge-y "Better Off."

While the album is mostly mid-tempo, Quadron is even impressive when they speed up things: "Hey Love," the album's first single, is a fun jam session, and Coco O.'s voice is addictive on the hooks of "LFT" and "Favorite Star."

"Crushes don't come with warnings," she sings on the latter track.

Now you're warned.
