First there is a beat that slowly creeps through your limbs. Shy but
powerful, elegant but casual. It fills up the room. And then this voice
“when you fell from the sky out of nowhere” she sings.
Direct, clear and still fragile, a Melody that covers you like a warm
blanket. A coy synthesizer mixes with in. If you could transfer daydreams
into music it would sound like “Sweet Love” from Janou.
It is the first ever single of the Duo from Bochum and gives a peak
into their debut EP, “what we found”. It includes four songs, so
mellow and modern it is hard to believe you are listening to a debut
album. Minimalistic beats that flirt with heartbreaking electric
spheres and such a voluminous and soulful voice of the singer Janou.
Immediately you are reminded of the big acts of the electronic
pop scene: London Grammar, Rhye, Lykke Li. Artists Janou can
already compete with, even without sounding anyhow comparable
with something familiar, something we might have heard before.
No, Janou takes your hand and safely guides you into the depths of
their secret world. Intimate and raw lyrics, what once was big becomes
small. Songs that sound like a holiday in a wooden cabin on
Mars, with the vastness of the universe right on the edge of your porch.
