Parson’s cool, shadowy singing and perky, understated electronic arrangements are reminiscent of the early ‘80s movement now known as ‘minimal wave.’ Dancefloor fillers for bedsitters.
When we first listened to “La Tristesse,” the album’s opening track, we thought it was a smash hit. A great, sad bastard pop song, with great lo-fi synth wave production. Rémi is a great lyricist, which is very unique in this genre in France. He lives in London, but he sings in French. We love that concept, how to grow and spread the language abroad. We also asked an Italian artist, Stop the Wheel, to sing in French, and he made a great Yves Simon cover. It’s fun being francophone.
