Album Title: Dark Fades Into The Light
Release Date: April 1, 2008
Genre: Rock
Here to combat the monstrous flood of British female singer-songwriters is Australian native Sandrine. While it could take some bribery before we see her, New Buffalo and Sia square off with Winehouse, Duffy, and Adele, there’s no way that that fight wouldn’t be worth the wait. Hopefully the war would involve some sort of sing-off. Sandrine has made an album worthy of our attention (yes, even here in the legendarily closed-bordered North America). Dark Fades Into The Light fits more comfortably beside the works of her fellow Australians rather than the throaty, bluesy world of the Brits—that is to say, it’s a mellow, thought-provoking listen rather than a dance-a-thon.

Sandrine has got a whimsical rasp of a voice, and only time will tell where it will place her amongst the flood of females from far away lands. But although Dark Fades was carried here on a wave of sound-of-the-moment, it doesn’t mean that the 15-track album doesn’t stand without that support—because it does. As with any sort of hyped movement, the only thing one can do is take a listen for oneself (and if you’ve only got time for one track, then make it “Save Your Kisses”). In this case, your ears will likely tell you that Sandrine is one of the artists making the waves, not merely surfing them.
