Sarah Raddau makes dance music with a little more soul than what is usual. She'll get your feet
moving with her cool grooves and stir your mind with her smart words. "I tried to reach you" sounds
like Everything but The Girl after they discovered drum'n'bass. Rabdau's sensual voice works well
with the subdued beats. "I was wrong" is a haunting song, which pits a sad lyric against an up-tempo
"Runaway" is a danceable song with a dark-themed lyric. Radbdau has found a way to combine the
two extremes without creating too strong a contrast. "Onlyone" is jazzy and cool. Rabdau's sweetly
delivered vocal is just great.
Benevolent Apollo is a striking debut from a gifted artist.
