Charlotte & Elisabeth – Explicit Songs




Charlotte & Elisabeth’s second album showcases English chansons by composers like Jacques Brel, Berthold Brecht, Tom Lehrer and more contemporary writers, such as Molly Lewis. While not all of these songs are sad, scandalous or sinister, Charlotte & Elisabeth seem to like those the best. This is why they decided to dress a handful of them in a new, very reduced musical dress.
