    Christine and the Queens Discusses How 'Impressive' Marina & The Diamonds Is: Interview

    The French singer-songwriter also reflects on working with Perfume Genius for her debut album

    Earlier this year, Christine and the Queens joined Neon Gold label mate Marina & The Diamonds on a U.S. tour that introduced the French artist to American fans. During a recent visit, Héloïse Létissier says that she was dazzled by the enthusiasm of U.S. audiences, as well as by Marina Diamandis' stage show.

    “In terms of the performance, she’s really skilled,” says the Christine and the Queens leader. “I was impressed, because her songs are really operatic sometimes, really complicated top lines to sing. And she’s doing it every night.”

    Christine and the Queens’ self-titled debut is one of the standout pop albums of 2015, and is highlighted by “Jonathan,” a collaboration with Perfume Genius. Watch her discuss the team-up below:
