– Out of Breath

“…rock music and classical baroque accents, all tinged with a little dark romance.”

Reviews:

“Four years after their debut, Mièle are back with even more charm…reminiscent of the great French pop of the 80s. Very exciting.”
– Le Soir *

“Valiantly presenting their pop-rock in the language of Molière…fresh and unpretentious…Stéphane Daubersy and Catherine De Biasio share the microphone with a great sense of complicity.”
– Télémoustique *

“…with twinkling melodies and sheer elegance…simple song-writing confirming the old adage that ‘less is more’.”
– Metro *
