    Housse de Racket

    Dance

    There’s a lengthy list of impressive names who have employed Pierre Leroux and Victor Le Masne, aka Housse de Racket, as session musicians: Phoenix, Air, Gonzales (OohLaLA 2009 act!), Alex Gopher or Stardust. These instances lead to the formation of the duo in 2008.

    One debut album and more than 200 shows around the world convinced the French pop duo to extend their potential worldwide. Now add the notorious producer of their second album, Alesia, Philippe Zdar (half of Cassius and producer of The Rapture, Beastie Boys, among others), plus their record label Kitsuné (acclaimed label behind many revered acts such as Two Door Cinema Club) to the equation and it’s easy to see how Housse de Racket’s potential is propelling them to their destiny.

    Housse de Racket embody the most essential artistic skills: very specific and genuine song-writing enveloped in exquisite pop-electro tunes. As well as good taste and savoir faire. With a tinge of psychedelia, Alesia is an elixir of the new mythical French pop. 

  • Lescop

    Lescop

    Dance

    LESCOP is an exciting young French artist, who has been developing a project in London with the duo JOHN & JEHN. LESCOP has a straightforward objective. He wants to make people dance, while he sings about his obsessions: complex human relationships, love, films, punk and his others’ many different heroes… amongst them Yukio Mishima, Marlene Dietrich, Jean Pierre Malville, Jesse Owens, Georges Guynemer and the Red Baron… LESCOP has, so far, always written lyrics in French conscious of a need to reinvent French pop music, to take more risks “to reconcile the irreconcilable”… who better than JOHN, French producer living in London to join forces with LESCOP? To create an alternative to existing French rock, which sadly seems all but non-existent… To conciliate disco and Mishima, Bowie – Berlin period – with Yves Simon. “We’re never easy on ourselves, we are really interested in music contradictions, we think this is where the magic happens, we want to mix French popular music with punk, we want our pop to be bipolar; we fight against music boredom, it’s a controlled chaos, a love story.” LESCOP writes lyrics, brings music to JOHN who reinvents new ideas at each proposision, while JOHN’s partner JEHN, instantly films the artistic effervescene, and creates videos in response to the music: tense, sharp and sexy. The artistic collaboration carries on with Gael Etienne, graphic designer and leftfield musician – perfect for LESCOP. As a natural consequence, JOHN & JEHN created their label POP NOIRE, to encapsulate all these facets and drive them into the same direction: a singular creation. LESCOP‘s first release on POP NOIRE is an excellent first EP of terrific French New Wave.

  • Citizens!

    Citizens!

    Dance

    London-based English band Citizens! is the brand new exalting Kitsuné signing, a label proving to be a leader in discovering emerging talent. Citizens! label mates Two Door Cinema Club were hailed as “the biggest band on the planet” by NME.

    This position may be soon filled by Citizens!

    Here We Are is Citizens!’s debut album. Indeed, here they are, one of the most thrilling acts in Europe in 2012 with electro-pop hits (‘Reptile,’ ‘True Romance’), a top-notch producer (no one else than Alex Kapranos, Franz Ferdinand’s leader), and high-powered live shows, making Citizens! the new English favorites. As with their predecessors, this band’s first shows in America are not to be missed.
