The French know how to do many things extremely well but for some reason rock has never been their foray and the majority of the music that I would listen to from there would have more than a tinge of electronica to it. There are exceptions of course and although I am a bit late to the fray hearing their tunes from their 2007 album, a friend request from kIM NOVAk really peaked my ears.
While I am one to shy away from comparing groups- mostly because of my deplorable memory for names- there are obvious comparisons to Interpol and Editors and yet they do have a slightly different vibe which makes them unique.
When I first went to their official site there was a widget was playing the very catchy Love Affair but that seems to be gone now unfortunately…so have a listen to Swallow which is catchy as well or head to their label Le Cargo‘s site for snippets of each tune.
