While I've loved their previous output I reckon C.I.A. Debutante's recent pair of releases have solidified them as a bonafide musical UNIT. Paul Bonnet's mesmerizing electronics and Nathan Roche's lucid vocals have become a singular voice, as opposed to two tradespersons bringing their individual tools to the table.
I'd place them in very special company with Call Back The Giants, Ike Yard, Robert Rental, XX Committee, a bit of Nord or Ilitch, or catch them on the same stage as YL Hooi, Tsap and Troth when Red Bull restart their music academy in an effort to align themselves with this fantastic modern music!
