Isabelle Antena

En Cavale

After an aborted demo deal with Island Records, Belgian electro-samba wunderkinds Antena split at the end of 1985. Singer Isabelle Antena wasted no time, immediately shedding her cold wave crown for a sophisticated pop princess tiara. On 1986’s En Cavale, echos of Madonna and city pop abound, with a lipstick stain of L80s Euro dance and spilled cosmopolitan’s worth of bossa nova stirred in for good measure. The elegant second chapter of a French pop treasure.
