Danish-born, Los Angeles-based duo Quadron, which is vocalist Coco O. and multi-instrumentalist/producer Robin Hannibal, have revealed the track-listing for their upcoming new album, Avalanche, which will be released on June 4th by Vested in Culture/Epic Records. A funky, soulful affair characterized by Coco’s gleaming voice and Robin’s meticulous, modern production, Avalanche is available for pre-order now.

Like “Hey Love,” Avalanche is already attracting early critical praise. Upon hearing it, Billboard remarked: “Filled with luxe string arrangements, sunny synths and above all Coco’s shimmering, carefully controlled vocals, the album’s a sonic step up from the duo’s self-titled 2009 debut.”

In its review of Quadron‘s April 25th show at Le Poisson Rouge, The New York Times said of the sound: “Musically, it’s full of hard bass thump, soothing keyboards and a hint of brassy ornamentation: it moves with the smooth eroticism of the 1970s, deliciously languorous. But Coco O is a singer steeped in 1990s R&B – there are flickers of the early, looser Mary J. Blige in her voice and inflections. She sings with attitude, but not aggression. Even when she’s angry, she comes off as sweet. … The contrast of Mr. Hannibal’s slow, lush production and her nimble, impactful singing makes for a powerful and often surprising match.”
