Christine and the Queens
It’s not often that a song gets played on every radio station these days. ‘Christine’ (2014) by Christine and The Queens was an exception to this. The band name is the public face of Héloïse Letissier, a theatre student who encountered some musical transvestites in London in 2010. The result is accessible freak pop that blends music, performance, video and dance. Christine became Chris and in 2022 he requested to be addressed as he/him from then on. His new stage name is Redcar. The name of the musical project Christine and the Queens remains the same and the artistic line was extended on the third album ‘Redcar les Adorables Étoiles’ (2022). The 13 songs were written in as many days and, according to their creator, they sound “splashy with an eighties sound”.
