The Paris-based duo Charlotte & Magon offer a fine in cosmic alt-pop, as evidenced by latest single "I Don’t Wanna Go"; slick, suave and super catchy indie pop song with a mischievous twinkle. Eerie content of the music is juxtaposed by dreamy instrumentation, upbeat rhythms and contrasting colourful sounds throughout – for beneath the catchy indie-pop environs this is an anti-war song, depicting the effects of Magon’s forced service. In short, it is a catchy and infectious album that is approaching something akin to Kate Bush meets early Arcade Fire.
