Je Suis Une Ile (I Am An Island) is the debut album from French multi-instrumentalist Halo Maud. Hailing from the French proggy, psychedelic and experimental pop scene that birthed Melody's Echo Chamber, Moodoïd and cult label La Souterraine, her ethereal songs flit between the English and French language. She focuses on notions of freedom and power as seen through a wild and playful lens. Every one of her influences can be felt in her songs. Her father was a reverend, and lead single ''Baptism'' was inspired by Maud's own baptism at age twelve. The second half of the album looks back on the first through a distorted mirror, filled with loops, percussion and keys that are always about to slip from mischief to malevolence.
