Although I generally tend to skew a little alty when it comes to my music, I will always embrace a good pop group with open arms. If you read this blog regularly, then you know I also have a love-affair with all things French (cliche I know, but it's the absolute truth). So its no surprise that when I heard the first single from SingTank's upcoming album, I was hooked (now I just have to wait till May for the album to be released).
|Singtank's Joséphine and Alexandre De La Baume.|
Singtank is Joséphine and Alexandre De La Baume, a brother/sister duo from France who worked with producer Nelle Hopper (who has collaborated with Massive Attack and Bjork) on their debut project. Their sound varies, from fun pop grooves that will no doubt be turned into club remixes, to softer more introspective tunes. In "The Party's"
and Wonderland themed video, this duo shows they can be playful without taking themselves too seriously. Alice
In "Nuthouse", you can hear a more introspective and serious sound, both musically and lyrically.
I must also admit that a tiny part of the allure of this group is Josephine's amazing personal style. There is a great interview with her here talking Singtank, personal style, how French girls stay chic, and her favorite pair of shoes. She has that effortlessly chic style (with a touch of masculinity and sexiness at the same time) that I'm always trying to replicate. And I love that she says that French girls always look like they didn't try, but they really do:) She also happens to be married to DJ/Producer extraordinaire Mark Ronson - talk about a creative duo! So download "The Party," and get ready for the weekend - Happy Friday everyone!
