Hailing from the French proggy, psychedelic and experimental pop scene that birthed Melody’s Echo Chamber, Moodoïd and cult label La Souterraine, Halo Maud’s ethereal songs flit between English and French language, focussing on notions of freedom and power through a wild and playful lens.
Praise for Je Suis Une île:

“Keyboard-driven dream-pop with chiming guitars that give the air of post-Cocteaus psychedelia, Nadal’s chosen oeuvre couldn’t be more ‘now’: file under yet another reason why French women rule music in 2018.” – Mojo, 4/5

“An unexpected gem” // “At first blush, it’s clotted with period-piece electro textures, but deeper listens reveal a peculiarly compelling, prog-pop heart.” // “Beautifully unmoored, adrift.” – Uncut

“Je Suis Une île is that rarest of things: psychedelia with one foot firmly in the future.” ​- Shindig!, 4/5

“beautiful and enchanting psych-pop” – Gorilla Vs Bear

“Halo Maud is French pop at its best” – The Line of Best Fit

“Halo Maud creates hypnotic tracks…  It’s a pretty heavenly combination.” – DIY

“The music is sweet, soft, beautiful and all-consuming.” – The Quietus

“Maud’s vocals, switching between French and English, drift among the ether accompanied by gentle, floating melodies… Pure bliss.” – Electronic Sound

“Sumptuous pop music of a decidedly French persuasion; charming and biting in all the right places” – GoldFlakePaint

“exquisitely crafted dream pop.. reminiscent of bands like Stereolab, Broadcast” – Drowned in Sound
