Released via Ransom Note Records, PINNED sees C.A.R. – aka Chloé Raunet – refine her palette of glimmering electronics and post punk angles. With Raunet taking on the mantle of producer, singer, and songwriter, the album is a journey inside her inner world. Part French pop chanteuse and part cold wave androgyny, Raunet’s vocals spin out mysterious stories over hazy claustrophobic synth pop and epic, widescreen electronica vignettes. From the whispering creep of ‘VHS’ to the android John Foxx-esque machine march of ‘Cholera’, PINNED keeps its secrets close, offering both flashes of bittersweet joy – as on album closer ‘This City’s exhortation that “I’m still drunk on life, so I won’t sleep tonight” – and numb, world weary ballads. “Sitting on your broken bones, the years have slapped around”, Raunet laments on standout lead single ‘Daughters’, an elegy to the faded. After a career that has seen her formerly leading the feted electro outfit Battant, collaborating with trend setters including Maceo Plex, Ivan Smagghe, Krikor and Red Axes, C.A.R. is now blossoming as an artiste in her own right. Her enigmatic, electronic pop is packed with intricate left turns and tiny details flickering away at the edge of hearing. Aided by a restrained mix from Steve Osborne (Happy Mondays, Simple Minds and… New Order), PINNED has found the rarest of sweet spots between underground innovation and pop immediacy.
