"I couldn't improve on this"
“METISSE reach #1 in RN Electronica chart, with I SEE PEOPLE.”
“I just know they are Irish, I know what they look like, I know what they sound like, I don't know that much about them, but I love their music.
“A soft chopped up female vocal and funky breaks roll along pleasantly until one of the most absurdly fat bass lines of the year arrives and all hell breaks loose. Give your bass bins some exercise.”
“The music is very polished, baroque and orchestral, very lush and velvety, with AIDA's stunning voice coloring the tunes in a many hued wash.
“Slo-mo grooves on offer with some husky French totty intoning all manner of sexy, incomprehensible pitits mots over the top. Its a lounger for sure, a dreamer and a smoker. Smoldering stuff!!”
“METISSE success fuses a hybrid of styles like pop, dance, dub and traditional into an organic and funky whole. With AIDA's intense lyrics often personal paeans of loss and separation. This is celtic soul.
“The faintly new age ambience of their music, with its dubby bass lines, slow beats, atmospheric electronics and outwardly vocal flourishes, echos the pair's secluded life in an idyllic setting.
“Rarely do you hear music that is unique and brilliant to the ear and envelops and controls your body making it move subconsciously to its beat. METISSE do this and much more. Blending both Irish and African influences to create sounds and lyrics that are quite simply Superb.
“This album is brilliant!
“Totally fresh. Very cool!
“Imagine ENYA being enlightened by WILLIAM ORBIT and your almost there.
“Fusing cool electronic shades and addictive melodic overdubs with the soaring vocals of Aida in English, French and her native Diola dialect. METISSE was born out of happen-chance of an original musical union.”
