Isabelle Antena – Hoping for Love

Isabelle Antena
Hoping for Love
Style: Synth Pop
Label: Les Disques Du Crépuscule
Catalog Number: TWI 759
Released: 1987, 80's
Stream:

A balearic pop classic. Hoping for Love is French pop/jazz singer Isabella Antena’s 1987 second solo venture and was released five years after Antena’s monumental Camino Del Sol. With the original running order, Side A consists of the synth pop and mellow dance hits while the B is a latin and samba inspired suite arranged and composed entirely by Isabella herself. It’s full of elegance, charm, sophistication, and most of all sunshine. The best way to listen: sit by the pool and feel the breeze with the B, then flip to the A when the moon and cocktails come out.
